This report describes how the Center for Literacy (CFL) developed a staff orientation manual for new educators (teachers and coordinators of volunteers) who work in adult basic and literacy education (ABLE) programs. Orientation needs were assessed through two questionnaires--one for educators and another for administrators at CFL and 13 literacy agencies statewide in Pennsylvania. Based on the responses, CFL designed an orientation manual that addressed the needs of educators and agencies. It was field tested with CFL employees and examined by staff at participating agencies. The report is accompanied by the manual, a comprehensive guide for a teacher, coordinator, or other practitioner who is joining an organization that provides direct services for ABLE students. It is designed for use by educators in organizations of varying sizes and with many different types of programs. Topics covered include orientation, assessment, lesson planning, reading, writing, math, computer-assisted learning, materials and resources, teaching, coordinating, special services and programs, site management, recordkeeping, and leaving an educator position. The report also includes the CFL 1992 site list; scoring guidelines for student assessment; student forms; monthly report format; and proposed amendments to the Pennsylvania Adult Education State Plan.
