Looking at Adult Literacy Obliquely: Poetry, Stories, Imagination, Metaphor, and Gossip.
Kazemek, Francis E.
Adult Basic Education, v2 n3 p144-60 Fall 1992
Literacy must be grounded in creation: imagination, vision, revision, metaphor, and image. Literacy entails imaginative interpretation of texts in private and social contexts. Literacy education that ignores storytelling in favor of "practical" skills prevents construction of perspectives that make experience comprehensible. (SK)
