Description

Reviews

The author describes the ways in which workplace literacy programs can use a creative learner-centered approach to facilitate language learning through problem posing and critical thinking. By using learners' own experiences as the basis for the curriculum in a critical approach to literacy, educators can provide a common ground for adults of differing language backgrounds and learning styles to better use their literacy skills in a workplace culture.Additionally, the book details the ways in which educators can help workers learn to negotiate the environment of their workplace and to use their communicative skills outside of work.

"Gallo's book offers an especially useful discussion of techniques such as visual imagery, photography, and multimedia for workplace literacy, as well as methods of alternative assessment."--Journal of Continuing Higher Education, Spring 2005

"The major strength of the book lies in the specific suggestions and examples of activities that Gallo has found to be successful in her own classrooms...The suggestions are applicable to many different learning situations, so university instructors and K-12 teachers, as well as workplace educators, can benefit." -- Teresa Lucas, Adult Education Quarterly, August 2005
