Literacy Awareness and Literacy Hotlines: The Final Report of the Calgary Adult Literacy Awareness Project.
The report describes the design and results of a Calgary (Canada) program (August 1, 1990 to June 12, 1992) to disseminate information about literacy education needs and services to the local community. It is organized into sections, each addressing a specific program objective. Sections include the following: (1) increasing awareness, particularly among social agencies, businesses, and unions, of the problems of low literacy and encouraging solutions; (2) helping low-literacy adults find appropriate literacy programs; (3) increasing communication among literacy providers and social agencies; (4) helping potential literacy volunteers find appropriate placements; (5) continuing efforts to learn of and address literacy needs in the city; and (6) efficient project administration. The two main project services included outreach to community and industry groups and a telephone hotline for referral to appropriate literacy programs. The project's efforts are described and hotline calls are tabulated. (MSE) (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse on Literacy Education)
