New Adult Literacy Education Journal
Date posted: August 15, 2019
Have you had a chance to read some of the articles in this new adult literacy education journal? Here’s a reminder from earlier this year when it was first released.
The inaugural issue of ProLiteracy’s Adult Literacy Education: The International Journal of Literacy, Language, and Numeracy has been released. This online, peer-reviewed journal will be published twice a year and it’s free.
The journal will cover research on adult basic and secondary education and transitions to college and career programs. Research will reflect best practices in adult literacy, numeracy and English language education in publicly funded, community and volunteer-based programs in a wide variety of contexts. It is written to inform practitioners, researchers, policy makers, and funders.
You can download the full journal or individual articles. Here’s the contents of Volume 1, Issue 1:
