Abstract:

Review of Adult Learning and Literacy: Connecting Research Policy, and
Practice, Volume 4 is the newest addition to a series of annual
publications of the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and
Literacy (NCSALL) that address major issues, the latest research, and the
best practices in the field of adult literacy and learning.

Volume 4 opens with an overview of significant recent developments in
the field. Subsequent chapters cover a wide range of topics critical to the
success of adult education and literacy services in the United States:

*issues of race, class, gender, and sexual orientation;

*the role of workplace education in building adults' basic skills;

*the role of new learning technologies in adult education and literacy;

*adult developmental theories and their implications for the teaching of
adult basic education and English for speakers of other languages; and

*traditional and contemporary adult learning theories, including an
annotated bibliography of key resources.

Intended for policymakers, scholars, and practitioners dedicated to
improving the quality of adult basic education, adult English for speakers
of other languages, and adult secondary education programs, Review of Adult
Learning and Literacy, Volume 4 is an essential resource for the field.
