Whole Language (1991)

A Framework for Thinking about Literacy Work with Adults

In a whole language approach, language development - reading, writing and oral language - is integrated with learning about topics of interest. Students and teachers learn with and from each other. Whole language is not a method or technique. Rather, it is a way of thinking about language learning, and about which methods and techniques are appropriate for helping people learn.

This document presents research on the use of the whole language education approach in adult literacy programs.
