Authors: Maurice C. Taylor
Collection: Research Materials
This report is about ten Canadian people who were categorized as Level 1 and Level 2 adults, according to the International Adult Literacy Survey (IALS). It talks about the types of informal learning that goes on in their lives and how they practice their literacy skills. Included is an overview of the project, ten stories or narratives about some remarkable adults who have discovered learning in their own way, and annotated bibliography.
The report is part of a series of documents generated during a two-year National Literacy Secretariat funded research project entitled, “Informal Learning and Media Perceptions of Adults With Low Literacy Skills”.
