Whole Language and Adult Education. ERIC Digest.
Lewis, Warren
This digest argues that whole language theorists and adult education theorists have much in common, much to say to one another, and much to learn from one another. The digest first defines and discusses "whole language," then defines and discusses "andragogy," (the learning of adults) and finally asks educators to recognize that the "two universes of discourses" are one so that the net result is that education becomes transformative. Contains 12 references. (NKA)
