An Annotated Bibliography of Adult Literacy Resources.
Intended for the Literacy Coordinators of Alberta, this annotated bibliography reflects the needs of the PROSPECTS Adult Literacy Program clientele; therefore, it does not include resources for native learners and includes only resources available at the PROSPECTS library and the Edmonton Public Schools' adult literacy library. One hundred fifty-three resources are described. All but three of them are publications. Twenty-nine concern the topic of everyday living skills. Sixty are described under a heading called "Reading." Sixty-one are workbooks, and three are video programs. The annotations typically include evaluative comments. Criteria that guided the evaluations included the following questions: (1) Is the readability level below grade 9? (2) Is the language suitable for adult readers? (3) Does the book have an adult-like appearance? (4) Will the amount of print on the page overwhelm the adult literacy reader? (5) Are the illustrations appropriate for use with adults? (6) Do the exercises reflect current knowledge about the reading process? (7) Are the workbooks and reading based on the interactive reading process model of reading? and (8) Is the content Canadian? The names and addresses of the publishers whose products are annotated are included, as is a glossary. (CML)
