The fourth goal set by the Dakar Forum on Education for All (EFA) in 2000 aimed to 'achieve a 50 per cent improvement in levels of adult literacy by 2015, especially for women, and equitable access to basic and continuing education for all adults'. However, the EFA Global Monitoring Report for 2006 estimated that 50 countries were at risk or serious risk of not achieving this goal. Despite a century of experience in running adult literacy programmes, the empirical comparative evidence on what makes for the most effective strategies, teaching methods and learning materials remains surprisingly scarce. This paper therefore uses what hard evidence there is to discuss the options that education and curriculum planners can consider, whether they are governmental or non-governmental. Starting from the operational meaning of ’literacy' and the implications of a human right to literacy, this publication looks at what can realistically be expected from a literacy project and explores the different options available to education policy-makers and national development planners to ensure that their own countries do achieve this literacy goal

Expert coaches and anyone coaching for the first time will love the The Literacy Coach, 2/e! Reviewers Sum it up! "The framework in which this book is embedded is one of the more elegant ones in existence." Donna Alvermann, The University of Georgia "I found this book to be helpful to not only literacy coaches, but to classroom teachers who may want to become coaches or merely better understand their roles. I also believe building principals would find the book extremely useful...I only wish I had been given such access to all of this information five years ago!" Amy Ely, Brush Middle School What distinguishes The Literacy Coach: Guiding in the Right Direction (2nd edition) from other worthwhile titles on the same topic is the authors' decision to avoid focusing on specific coaching models in favor of taking an ethnographic stance toward working with all literacy coaches, regardless of the model in which they find themselves. Take a peek inside... Addresses the needs of elementary, middle, and high school literacy coaches while considering Response to Intervention/Instruction Supports the professional development of literacy coaches by Giving a comprehensive look at how learners learn vs. just learning to read; Implementing the idea of categorizing coaching points (into three broad categories) to economize on time and attention; and Including three levels of observations (primary, secondary, and tertiary). Includes a description of the four cornerstones of any successful school reform model: students, teachers, administrators, and the literacy coach. Considers the NRP report and IRA's Standards for Literacy Coaches. Meet the Authors Enrique A.

Literacy skills for the knowledge society, the second comparative report from the International Adult Literacy Survey, presents new findings for 12 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries. Low literacy is a much larger problem than previously assumed in every country surveyed: from one-quarter to over one-half of the adult population fail to reach the threshold level of performance considered as a suitable minimum skill level for coping with the demands of modern life and work. There are significant differences among member countries in how literacy skills are distributed in the population. In some, performance is skewed towards exceptional achievement among a minority in the work force; in others skills are more evenly distributed, with fewer people on the lowest level. Differences in the skill profiles of nations have implications for continued economic prosperity, democracy and social cohesion because jobs in knowledge societies require high levels of skill. Improving the literacy skills of a large number of adults is a high priority everywhere, but how can this be done? This report suggests that active and daily practice at work and at home is the key. Employers in particular have a large role to play, because of the importance of the work environment to much adult learning.

Inquiry Paths to Literacy Learning, a collection of chapters from secondary teachers and university researchers, offers English language arts teachers several models and considerations for how to design and implement inquiry-based teaching and learning. As the contributors demonstrate, an inquiry approach can significantly boost student achievement, understanding, and transfer of learning. The chapters in this collection present classroom-tested approaches, activities, and assignments that teachers can use right away, but that also serve as models for designing learning experiences that most engage and benefit learners. Focusing on issues that adolescents find consequential, the sample learning activities promote the development of complex literacy skills, engage students in evidence-based reasoning, and foster an environment of cooperation, collaboration, and respect for different points of view. Together, the contributions in this book envision the English language arts classroom as a supportive environment for authentic inquiry and for the genuine democratic processes involved in grappling together with tough perennial and contemporary issues.
