The Study Guide starts with two writing resources for adult learners.
Copy them and hand them out. Post them in the classroom. Review the writing process before learners begin a writing activity and encourage learners to use them.
The Study Guide has 4 sections - one for each of these stories that we chose from the Northern Writes Writing Contest:
Each section includes the written text for the story and a list of learning activities. Each learning activity has separate instructor notes and handouts. We use the following symbols to show story text, instructor notes, and handouts.
|Written text for the story. Each story can be photocopied and given to learners to read. The stories range from 110 to 130 reading level.|
|Instructor notes give basic information about the purpose of different learning activities, and any necessary details about how to do them.|
|Handouts are the pages you can copy for learners to use during the learning activities. Some activities have no handouts. Some have up to three.|
