Collaboration for Literacy, conducted by Boston University, is a community based reading project which trains college work study students as literacy tutors to provide individualized reading instruction to low reading level adults (0 - 4 grade levels). Two handbooks were developed. The tutor's handbook contains: information on adult illiteracy, issues and problems; details of the college work-study tutoring program; real logs of tutors; and tutor teaching strategies.
