Defining Literacy and Its Consequences in the Developing World.
Walter, Pierre
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v18 n1 p31-48 Jan-Feb 1999
Uses Lytle and Wolfe's metaphors for literacy (literacy as skills, tasks, practices, or critical reflection) to identity the consequences attached to literacy in each category, focusing on adults in the developing world. Concludes that consequences depend on who is evaluating them and for what purposes. (SK)
