ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY

Introduction

The following Annotated Bibliography is an attempt to provide a selection of resources that are accessible and free of charge to volunteer tutors. This is not a complete catalogue, but a sampling of practical and easy to use resources appropriate for use by literacy tutors, available at Literacy Partners of Manitoba (LPM).

Entries are listed alphabetically according to the title. The majority of entries are annotated with the LPM Resource Centre call number listed, (call numbers may not be listed for some titles that have not yet been catalogued). These materials are available for borrowing by LPM members, and for in-house use by non-members.

A selection of entries with self-explanatory titles that are not annotated are also listed at the end of each section. Of particular note are the selection of Learner Writings, and Tape/Book sets that are not included in this Bibliography, but are available at the LPM Resource Centre.

In addition to the LPM resources, the following are included in the Bibliography:

  • a selection of resources available for borrowing from the Winnipeg Public Library;
  • a list of materials available free of charge from the Adult Literacy and Basic Skills Unit, located at 417-185 Carlton Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 3J1. Phone: Robin Millar.
