Understanding the Shift in Personal Identity: A Phenomenological Analysis of Literacy
Miller, Kelli
ProQuest LLC, D.Ed. Dissertation, Capella University
At the 1978 United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization conference, literacy was determined as a right as expressed in the foundation of learning and the vital first step to the achievement of other human rights. However, in the state of Georgia, many high school students enter the working environment without minimum literacy skills and are unable to fully participate in society. This phenomenological analysis of literacy sought to understand the shift in personal identity for adult literacy students and how the theories of andragogy assisted in their identity change.
