This paper contains excerpts from the report of Phase Three of the Literacy and Homelessness Project, which involved developing and documenting ways to do literacy work with homeless, transient or other marginalized people.
This report is divided into two main sections: 'Practical ideas' and 'Critical issues'. The 'Practical ideas' section presents a selection of concrete ideas for doing project-based work and for documenting learnings that have been successful in literacy work with homeless and marginalized people. Most of these ideas could be adapted by programs that do any kind of literacy work and not just work with homeless people. The "Critical issues" section presents a discussion about some current critical issues concerning this work and literacy work in general, including issues about accountability and funding. A final section of this report provides a brief listing of some print and Internet resources.
