Reviews

Traditional programming approaches to literacy education may be inadequate when dealing with the complexities of homelessness. Among the factors affecting program design for homeless adults are the trauma of homelessness and the difficult environments in which instruction takes place. These factors combined with the broad range of homeless adults' educational needs have led to a fresh approach to both literacy education and program design. This book offers readers an examination of eight roles of literacy education in the overall services to homeless adults. It suggests program goals, teacher training guidelines, and six proven models of instruction. The authors, based on their experience, have developed strategies such as "multiple points of entry" and "multiple points of staying" that should enhance program effectiveness, regardless of the barriers and challenges.

"Norris and Kennington have written a rather unique book. Although--and because--this volume deals with a particular population in depth, its guidance is useful as well for adult educators working with various other at-risk groups." -- Trenton R. Ferro, PAACE Journal of Lifelong Learning, Vol. 4, 1995
