Community Literacy, Labor Market Intermediaries, and Community Communication Ecologies
Pennell, Michael
Community Literacy Journal, v1 n2 p41-56 2006
Arguing that we fail both parents and students if we continue to think of community literacy as a dichotomy between school and work, this article illustrates Labor Market Intermediaries (LMIs) as sites of community literacy. The investigation of LMIs in a particular community (Greater Lafayette, Indiana) allows for a more thorough understanding of community literacy outside of traditional sites such as schools, community centers, and adult education programs; in turn, the article argues that such an understanding may lead to more productive involvement by literacy educators in our communities. (Contains 3 tables.)
