Book Information

   

Title: Reading Work
Subtitle: Literacies in the New Workplace
Written By: Mary Ellen Belfiore
Tracy A. Defoe
Sue Folinsbee
Judy Hunter
Nancy S. Jackson
Description:

This book explores changing understandings of literacy and its place in
contemporary workplace settings. By taking a social perspective, it
challenges traditional thinking about workplace literacy as functional
skills, and enables readers to see the complexity of literacy practices and
their embeddedness in culture, knowledge, and action. A mixture of
ethnographic studies, analysis, and personal reflections makes these ideas
accessible and relevant to a wide range of readers in the fields of adult
literacy and language education and helps to bridge the divide between
theory and practice in the field of workplace education.
