Getting Started: Adult Education, Reading, and Writing. An Annotated List of Bibliographies for Youth and Adult Literacy Programs.
This annotated list of nine bibliographies in the fields of adult basic education, reading, and writing is the first step in guiding adult literacy programs, especially in New York City, to choose the best and most appropriate materials for use by their students and staff. The bibliographies have three important characteristics: (1) wide range of materials from a variety of sources or materials not easily found elsewhere; (2) clear, accurate, and informative annotations; and (3) focus on reading and writing for English speakers who read at 0 to eighth-grade levels. The bibliographies describe a range of materials for these purposes: general interest, reading for enjoyment, reading in the content areas/life skills, reading and language texts or workbooks, and writing. The annotations include information in this format: title, compiler(s), date of publication, target population (students), staff and type of program suggested for reading level (and what this is based on, if given), selection policy (a brief description or list of criteria, if given), annotation (often includes sample entry, mentions special features and gaps), and ordering information.
