Journeys in Language, Learning and Culture
Authors: Helen Woodrow
Collection: Learning Materials
Finding Lost Luggage by Helen Woodrow is a story in the book Wayfering Journeys in Language, Learning and Culture, it is a collection of writings by ABE instructors and students in Newfoundland brought together for a "language awareness project", designed to explore attitudes, beliefs, and knowledge about language and the teaching of language.
Even in the book's earliest stages, the concept of wayfaring, travelling close to the ground, was prominent as a metaphor for the literacy we need inside classrooms, and inside ourselves.
This is also a useful contribution to the literature of practitioner research and inquiry.
