Toward Defining Literacy.
Venezky, Richard L., Ed.; And Others
This collection of four papers (each with a response) given at a 1987 symposium focuses on a renewed consideration of literacy in America and its implications for national, state, and local policy. The papers include "Definitions of Literacy" (Richard L. Venezky); "Literacy for What Purpose?" (Larry Mikulecky); "Measuring Adult Literacy" (Irwin S. Kirsch); and "Policy Implications of Literacy Definitions" (Jeanne S. Chall). A concluding section summarizes the basic issues raised in the papers and gives an interpretation of the positions presented on each. (RS)
