Conflicting Paradigms in Adult Literacy Education (paperback)
Click to enlarge

"The book provides a historical overview of adult literacy theory, policy, practice, and research from the mid-1980s to the present.  The main focus is a descriptive analysis of three distinctive schools of literacy: the Freirean-based participatory literacy movement grounded in oppositional politics and grass-roots community activism; the British-based New Literacy Studies that focus on the ways in which diverse students utilize various literacy practices in their daily lives; and the US federal government's focus on functional literacy linked to a 45-year policy emphasis on workforce readiness.  The discussion includes a chapter on research traditions that closely parallel these perspectives on literacy education.

Conflicting Paradigms in Adult Literacy Education speaks to a wide audience, including not only the adult literacy community, but anyone interested in educational theory, practice, policy, research traditions, or political culture, and more fundamentally, in their intersection."
