Demetrion, George
Canadian Journal for the Study of Adult Education, v15 n2 p104-27 Nov 2001
Compares three perspectives on contextual literacy and gives examples of program settings with which each is philosophically congruent: (1) literacy as social practices, focused on use in daily life; (2) functional context literacy, mastery of concrete tasks embedded in environments; and (3) critical literacy, analysis of oppression and use of participatory teaching and learning.
