Summary expansion
"This textbook is intended as a guide for noneducators who want to learn how to tutor individuals in literacy talks. A short introductory section is included that is devoted to theory, but only as much as necessary to allow tutors to make reasonable instructional decisions about their students. The remainder of the book focuses on the practical aspects of instruction in literacy for those who have no formal training in teaching. The book represents an effort to combine whole language literacy learning techniques with a lesson structure that is manageable for tutors and yet sufficiently flexible to meet the needs of the students effectively."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
