The ACME guide to literacy practice in community: a conversation for literacy practitioners, created by Anne Docherty, Sandra Lavallie and Dee McRae, 2009.
This Guide is a product of the project “From the Ground Up: A Research-in-Practice Approach to Outcome-Oriented Program Evaluation” managed by RiPAL-BC in partnership with Literacy BC and funded by the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada. The Guide presents – in an innovative and engaging way – a conversation for practitioners and tutors in adult literacy settings about the nature of literacy and the implications for practice. It is intended as a professional development tool that will spark dialogue, debate, ideas and reflection about how we define literacy, how we define literacy progress, and other “big picture” questions.
