The Social Construct of Adult Literacy Learners' Needs: A Case Study.
Falk, Ian
Language and Education, v7 n4 p221-37 1993
A theory-driven, critical case study of the stated needs for literacy of 11 adult literacy learners, argued to be social constructions, is reported. The hypothesis generated is that notions about literacy acquired in the context of acquisition of that literacy will be represented in the learners' subsequent requests for these literacy needs. (Contains 29 references.) (Author/LB)
