Taking Down the Wall of Words - Handbook for Community Agencies Part 2 (1991)

Researchers across Canada looked for and found examples of how community agencies can make sure that people who cannot read and write well can use their services. They also came up with ideas on how these organizations can be an important link between the people who have difficulty reading and writing and the many literacy programs available across Canada. The research team found that many of the people served by community agencies have trouble reading and writing. Low literacy is often one of many problems faced by people who are poor, sick, out of a job or in trouble with the law.

The research results are reflected in two volumes. Part 1, Taking Down the Wall of Words: Community Agencies and Literacy gives an overview of the problem of illiteracy and the role of community agencies in alleviating it. This handbook, part 2 of the series, is a practical guide to making literacy an integral part of your agency's operation and thinking. It is addressed to managers and program directors at community agencies and is designed to assist them in implementing literacy activities.
