Consumer Advocacy, Empowerment, and Adult Literacy.
Rosow, La Vergne
Journal of Reading, v34 n4 p258-62 Dec-Jan 1990-91
Uses junk mail, newspaper advertisements, and other promotional material to overcome one teacher's lack of instructional material and to teach multilingual and multicultural teenagers and adults the basics of consumer advocacy and American civics. Notes that the students gained power through literacy that would not have been possible with traditional, teacher-centered writing assignments. (RS)
