We have created another short Taster Journal for publicity and distribution and as the previous version proved very popular. All three can be found here in pdf format:
“This edition of the journal commemorates RaPAL’s thirty years, and the revolutionary social practices approaches to adult literacies education brewing in the eighties. We are delighted to carry commemorative pieces by Mary Hamilton and Brian Street, and some new ‘columns’ and features in the journal, such as contributing online commentary. The articles explore different aspects of the critical nature of people, their lives and contexts in literacies education. The topics range from provision for the Roma community in Spain, excluded young people on London’s troubled estates and community empowerment approaches through the global award-winning Reflect method, to theoretical analyses of motivation and frameworks of context in learning. We share our experimental part-virtual multi-hub Regional Colloquia held across three of the four nations last summer; and encourage you to participate in our Stories of Resilience co-publication with ACAL. Please do give us some feedback via the link on page 4. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
