Library Literacy Program
This final performance report for the Brooklyn Public Library Literacy Program begins with a section that provides quantitative data. The next section compares actual accomplishments to project objectives for fiscal year 1992 in the following areas: (1) redevelopment of the tutor training, including redesign or addition of the writing process, group instruction approaches, whole language, roleplay, and observation elements of the training model; (2) upgrading of trainers through pre- and post-training meetings and participation in staff development seminars; (3) conversion to group instruction; (4) new tutor orientations; and (5) the establishment of student and tutor databases. Proposed and actual expenditures are compared. Activities undertaken, the role of the library, and agencies and organizations involved are described. Facilities used are listed, and the impact of the project on the ongoing literacy program is discussed. Attachments include trainees' hand-written comments on tutor training sessions, a student record form, and a volunteer information record form. (Mes).
