Identifying Literacy Demands of Adult Numeracy.
Zevenbergen, Robyn
Literacy & Numeracy Studies, v10 n1-2 p39-53 2000
Through analysis of teacher talk and student talk in an adult numeracy class, demonstrates how cultural assumptions implicit in numeracy teaching are not made explicit to students. Situated in an English-as-a-Second-Language context, analysis demonstrates how these assumptions are embedded in linguistic choices that present particular kinds of hurdles for those from other linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
