A high level of literacy in both print and digital media is required for negotiating most aspects of 21st-century life, including supporting a family, education, health, civic participation, and competitiveness in the global economy. Yet, more than 90 million U.S. adults lack adequate literacy. Furthermore, only 38 percent of U.S. 12th graders are at or above proficient in reading. Improving Adult Literacy Instruction synthesizes the research on literacy and learning to improve literacy instruction in the United States and to recommend a more systemic approach to research, practice, and policy. The book focuses on individuals ages 16 and older who are not in K-12 education. It identifies factors that affect literacy development in adolescence and adulthood in general, and examines their implications for strengthening literacy instruction for this population. It also discusses technologies for learning that can assist with multiple aspects of teaching, assessment,and accommodations for learning. There is inadequate knowledge about effective instructional practices and a need for better assessment and ongoing monitoring of adult students' proficiencies, weaknesses, instructional environments, and progress, which might guide instructional planning. Improving Adult Literacy Instruction recommends a program of research and innovation to validate, identify the boundaries of, and extend current knowledge to improve instruction for adults and adolescents outside school. The book is a valuable resource for curriculum developers, federal agencies such as the Department of Education, administrators, educators, and funding agencies.

Pedagogy Of The City

This book is primarily comprised of interviews that took place between the first months of Paulo Freire's assuming leadership of the bureau of education in Sao Paulo, and the beginnings of his second year - including his farewell to the bureau upon his retirement. The highly provocative observations herein confirm a central imperative, namely, that public education must play a decisive role in the continuing reformation of a democratic society. Though written from the viewpoint of an authority in another culture, the implications of Paulo Freire's dialogues reach all the way to our own inner-city schools. Pedagogy of the City offers a plan of action for the transformation of schooling: the creation of schools that truly represent and respect the student; the creation of schools where students and their life experiences are a curriculum in interaction with teachers who can truly help them; and more. Twenty years after the landmark U.S. publication of Pedagogy of the Oppressed, this new Pedagogy of the City will help to stimulate anew the thinking of teachers and all concerned citizens.

The twenty-five contributors all adopt a broad conception of literacy and contemporary literacy practices and recognise that the world of language and literacy is in a constant state of transition and transformation. Together, the authors examine the past, the present and the future of literacy and celebrate the interests and expertise of the learners. They acknowledge that the textual environments of today are complex and fluid, shaped by the rapid emergence of new technologies and the influential nature of popular culture. Children's engagement with multiple forms of text is also highlighted, including the oral, the visual, the electronic and the written. In addition, issues of pedagogy are explored, through the voices of teachers, parents and children. Many chapters offer particular perspectives based on classroom experience, reflection and smaller scale studies The contributors here perceive a common and urgent need to acknowledge diverse forms of living literacy and to redesign the curriculum accordingly. With an inspiring introduction and postscript by the Editor, this Reader is an invaluable and accessible companion for all students of literacy.
