Social Literacies Across Communities, Cultures & Contexts
Click to enlarge

From Adult Literacy Research Network, this publication is a collection of reports on small action research projects, each of which examined how a particular group of people use literacy.

The reports cover the social literacies of people from a range of cultures, communities and contexts, with a common underpinning concept of literacy practices being embedded within social settings.  The editor finds that the reports reveal an 'urgent need for networking across sectors…to develop holistic programs' (p.6).  Papers include:

Social literacies (Jean Searle)

Recognising shifting delivery modes: rethinking initial adult literacy assessment for flexible delivery (Angela Hill and Susan Hubbard)

Lifelong learning, not a Band-Aid solution: a critical solution to multiple literacies (Marian Horton and David Horton)

Examining the accounts of homeless people's needs to determine a role for language, literacy and numeracy training (Geraldine Castleton and Rosemary Jewell)

An investigation into the level of literacy support skills needed by Queensland workers in youth work practice (Dale Johnson)

Literacy and numeracy skills of truants and underage leavers (Irena Morgan-Williams)

Stradbroke Island Literacy Project (Christine Seabrook and Lindy Freeman)
