Our Words, Our Voices, Our Worlds. Selected Poetry and Prose by Pennsylvania's Adult Basic Education Students.
Lincoln Intermediate Unit No. l2, New Oxford, PA.
This collection of adult student writing is the product of a literacy education project in Pennsylvania. Contributors to the volume were adult students in Adult Basic Education (ABE), General Education Development (GED), English as a Second Language (ESL), and basic literacy classes. The adults who participated in this writing project were encouraged to adopt a write-for-life philosophy, using writing to enhance their own personal growth and development as well as the well-being of their families and communities. The anthology contains both poetry and prose selections written mainly by persons who had been educationally disadvantaged and now were helping themselves by improving their basic skills in adult education/basic literacy programs throughout Pennsylvania.
