Literacy Skills for New Workers.
Hara, Ed
Community College Enterprise, v8 n1 p45-53 Spr 2002
This article examines the ways in which newly-hired factory workers define literacy. In this study, employees responded to open-ended questions and narrated a story to illustrate on-the-job success. Findings indicate that workers defined literacy in both traditional--in terms of reading and writing--and non-traditional ways, such as problem-solving and organizing. (NB)
