The Way Through. (A Personal Journey through the Maze of Literacy).
This book is a personal history of adult literacy as seen through the eyes of a student. The document assesses and evaluates styles of teaching and the student's role through the years 1969-1986 in England. The focus is on developing a new approach to literacy work, based on the principle of student-centered learning. In this method, the adult collaborates with the tutor in identifying the most effective subject matter, methods, and learning style. Other topics discussed include students' involvement in literacy program activities, conferences, and workshops as well as the experience of different methods: one-to-one tutoring, group work, and independent learning.
