Are you interested in learning what research says about how to teach reading to adults and what this might mean to your teaching?

We are looking for adult basic education and literacy administrators, teachers and tutors to participate in an exciting new pilot project to discuss how the latest research on reading can inform your instruction.

What is a Study Circle?
Study Circle is a peer group of literacy practitioners who come together to read and discuss research and best practices. It will be organized into four sessions. The first of which will be an in person meeting for 4 ½ hours. The remaining sessions will be shorter in duration and be held via conference calls and on-line discussions. You will be asked to read two to four articles before each session, which will be provided by the Study Circle facilitator. We ask that you attend all four sessions.

In Person Meeting: May 10, 2005 12:30 to 5:00 --Florida Mall Hotel, 1500 Sand Lake Road, Orlando, FL. (This is a pre-conference to the Florida Literacy Conference.)

Conference Calls: Tuesday afternoons, May 24, June 7, and June 21, and last approximately 1½ hours in addition a portion of the course will be online.

Topics will include:

*Models of Reading *Four Components of Reading Instruction

*Profiles of Adult Learners *Teaching Materials

This project is a partnership of the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy and the Florida Literacy Coalition, Florida’s Adult and Family Literacy Resource Center.

Participation is FREE. A stipend of $200 will be provided to each participant for their assistance in field-testing and providing feedback on the development of study circle guidelines. Attendance at all sessions is required. Travel assistance and all course materials will be provided.
