Adult literacies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Definitions of what it means to be literate are always shifting. The common way to think about literacy is by seeing it as a ladder that people climb up. This begins at school where children are ranked according to their examinable achievements and adult literacy is the extension of the process in post-school contexts.
