Literacy Learning in a Community-Based Program (1997)

The purpose of this research was to investigate the nature of literacy learning for 5 successful adult learners in a community-based program as well as to identify factors which supported their learning. A qualitative, case study approach was employed. The adults demonstrated both acceptance of and resistance to the dominant discourse on literacy. Consistent with expectations for community- based programs, empowerment was a predominant theme but tended to be more at an individual, rather than a social level.
