New Approaches to Adult Language, Literacy and Numeracy
This ground-breaking new series provides a coherent framework within which both new and experienced adult basic skills practitioners can develop their expertise.
Titles in this series will offer key texts for adult basic skills practitioners taking professional development courses. Using a multidisciplinary approach, the theories of adult basic skills are firmly grounded in everyday practice, making the material accessible to a wide readership. The books are united by a cutting- edge approach to literacy, numeracy and ESOL, and locate this material in a very realistic, social context, rather than a more traditional academic one. As well as gathering together the most important national and international research in adult literacy from the past three decacdes, each title will also feature:
guided reading exercises
references and further resources
glossary of key terms
a practical project activity, linked to the topic of each book
These books will be essential reading for new and experienced practitioners of adult literacy and numeracy and their trainers, and closely follows course content of NVQ levels 1 & 2, PGCE courses at NVQ levels 3 & 4, as well as Masters degrees and specialist post-graduate diplomas.
