Program-Based Research in Literacy = La recherche-action en alphabetisation.
Hautecoeur, Jean Paul
This bilingual exploration of program-based research discusses research in the everyday life of literacy programs and is also an account of one practitioner's personal experience. The first part explains the concept of program-based research. The second part reports on the relative lack of research in this area and gives a brief analysis of the circumstances that explain this state of underdevelopment. The third part investigates the conditions favorable to the everyday life of literacy programs. The fourth part presents four examples of program-based research in Canada. The conclusion points out the main limits of program-based research, but also reiterates the importance of its linkage with literacy programs. The complete text is given in both English and French. Fourteen bibliographical notes are included. (SR)
