Workplace Literacy: A Guide to the Literature and Resources. Information Series No. 352.
Imel, Susan; Kerka, Sandra
This guide to the burgeoning literature and resources on workplace literacy begins with an overview describing issues and trends in the development of the literature base. Hints for locating and selecting workplace literacy resources in Educational Resources Information Center--ERIC and other databases are provided. An annotated bibliography of 87 resources is organized by the following framework: general information (definition/description, information analysis/synthesis, critical perspectives), research (reviews, literacy requirements of the workplace, program development/implementation), evaluation and assessment, curriculum and instructional materials, program development guidelines, program descriptions, policy information, and resource lists/bibliographies. Seven programs are described, selected because they used innovative approaches or encountered problems that provide useful information. Each description includes the following elements: title, partners, special features, target population, source of information, program description, successes and problems, and recommendations. A list of 14 resource organizations is followed by 40 references. Two appendices contain the following: ERIC citations for 79 projects funded by the National Workplace Literacy Program, arranged by state, and an ERIC Digest, "Locating and Selecting Information: A Guide for Adult Educators."
