Shore, Sue; And Others

Another purpose was to develop examples of adult literacy curricula exemplary in the use of nonsexist, nonagist, and nonracist material. This document combines the executive summary with the full report. The development of inclusive adult literacy, language,, and numeracy curricula is examined. The report looks critically at the following: key theoretical issues, policy-making procedures, strategies for policy implementation (current good practice and the necessary steps to extend this good practice to an inclusive curriculum), and resources (16 books and journals are reviewed and summarized).
