Setting Goals with Adult Learners

Research shows that setting realistic goals and planning instruction around those goals is essential to effective literacy teaching. Check out this tutor's guide: Setting literacy goals and recording progress, from Workbase: The New Zealand Centre for Workforce Literacy Development. http://www.workbase.org.nz/Resource.aspx?ID=210 

This guide includes sections on assessing the learner's skills, developing individual learning plans, identifying steps to reach the learner's goals, planning teaching and learning activities, and much more. This is a great practical resource to keep on hand.
