Exploring an Alternative Literacy Curriculum for Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Parents in the U.K.
Finlay, Ann
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v43 n1 p18-26 Sep 1999
Describes an experimental literacy class for socially and economically disadvantaged parents in the United Kingdom. Looks at the many factors affecting these adult students' participation and learning. Notes that the literacy students wanted more than functional literacy--literacy had to fulfill the need to express feelings, the need for recreation, and the need for escape. (SR)
