This guide provides a trainer the material to acquaint program participants with the fundamental knowledge and skills required to teach reading effectively to adult, nonnative speakers of English. Content is based on research on the reading process in general, on the process of learning to read as an adult, and learning to read in another language. Document contents include a Training Overview/Schedule, and four session topics: Introduction to Teaching Reading, Selecting Appropriate Texts and Developing a Good Reading Lesson, Focus on Pre-Reading, and Putting a Reading Lesson Together.
