When people are properly selected and guided through the literacy cycle they can continue to learn. This topic covers the criteria for selecting participants for FAL classes and the factors required in motivating adults to continue learning.
By the end of this topic the participants should be able to:
• Identify the criteria for selecting participants for FAL classes.
c) Time: 1 hour 30 minutes.
d) Learning Aids: Blackboard, chalk, newsprint, markers, masking tape.
e) Procedure and Learning Points:
1. [40 min.] Ask participants to brainstorm on: What type of people would be enrolled in a FAL class? What criteria could be used for selecting them? Put their ideas on the blackboard or newsprint and allow a short discussion.
Possible criteria for selecting learners:
- Interest in being literate.
2. [30 min.] Ask each participant to suggest one or two activities learners would perform in a FAL class.
