Adult Literacy: Overview, Programs and Research. Focused Access to Selected Topics (FAST) Bibliography No. 71.
Johns, Jerry; Biggs, Karen
Noting that adult literacy involves adults who are readers and who are nonreaders, and that it is necessary to deal not only with problems of adult illiteracy, but also to encourage literate adults to read for work and pleasure, this bibliography presents annotations of 32 conference papers and journal articles published between 1989 and 1992 dealing with adult literacy. The Overview section outlines a variety of broad topics related to adult literacy. Sources in the Program section deal with various programs that facilitate the emergence and growth of adult readers. The Research section includes current studies dealing with adult literacy. The final section deals with other issues related to adult readers and the literacy movement. (RS)
