Toward a Community Development Approach to Literacy.
Bhattacharyya, Jnanabrata
Journal of the Community Development Society, v22 n2 p84-98 1991
The motivation/immersion model of literacy centers on the individual and isolates literacy from context. A community development approach regards literacy as a function of social structure; based on this model, literacy education programs are respectful of the culture and idiom of the community. (SK)
