This essential resource presents the major issues, latest research, and best practices in the field of adult learning and literacy. It is for policymakers, scholars, and practitioners dedicated to improving the quality of adult basic education (ABE), adult English for speakers of other languages (ESOL), and adult secondary education (ASE) programs. Each annual review will feature articles on the year's most critical topics; annotated reviews of the best books and journal articles; and timely updates on evolving policy and research.

    Written by diverse experts in the field, the articles in this first volume examine:
  • The National Research Council report on "Preventing Reading Difficulties in Young Children" and its implications for adult literacy
  • The recent influx of youth into adult literacy programs
  • The overlap between ABE programs and developmental programs in community colleges
  • The critical links between health and literacy
  • Assessment practices in adult ESOL
  • The challenges of integrating electronic technology into adult literacy programs

Each annual review will also investigate the adult learning and literacy system of a foreign country facing challenges similar to those in the United States. This particular volume describes the adult literacy system of the United Kingdom, highlighting features that can be adapted in our own nation.
