Postsecondary Literacy: Coherence in Theory, Terminology, and Teacher Preparation
Paulson, Eric J.; Armstrong, Sonya L.
Journal of Developmental Education, v33 n3 p4-6, 8, 10, 12-15 Spr 2010
Postsecondary literacy instruction--the teaching of basic writing and transitional, or developmental, reading in community colleges and 4-year colleges--is an important and growing field, but also one still developing in key areas. In this article, we discuss three of these areas within which postsecondary literacy instruction can continue to develop. Specifically, we discuss current issues in theory, terminology, and teacher preparation within the field. We also explore specific suggestions for increasing coherence and consider focal points for further inquiry in each area.
