Book Description

Adult Literacy in a New Era chronicles the history and development of The Open Book, an adult literacy organisation inspired by the legendary educationalist Paulo Freire, and other political educators. Using participants' own words and experiences, Ramdeholl analyses and investigates adult literacy policy and aspects of the program's history from its beginning in 1984 to its end in 2001. Offering new insights into methodologies of reading, writing, and learning, this book will inspire not only adult literacy students and teachers, but anyone concerned with changing public policy from the bottom up.
