Relating Literacy Development to Career Development. Literacy: Meeting the Challenge.
Moore, Allen B.
The third of eight related documents, this booklet is part of a series of papers presented at the 1978 National Right to Read Conference examining issues and problems in literacy. In its examination of the relationship between literacy and career development, the booklet first defines the components of basic literacy and of career development and presents charts and cites reports that show the correlation between them. It then presents, in outline form, six programs that attempt to link literacy to career development or job training. Having identified five problems that have arisen in such programs, it suggests strategies for solving them. A strategy for developing a program that relates literacy and career development is outlined in the appendix. (HTH)
