Brookfield. Stephen D. The Power of Critical Theory: Liberating Adult
Learning and Teaching. Jossey-Bass. (LC 5225 .L42 B77 2005). This book
presents powerful arguments for the importance of critical theory in
fostering the kind of learning that leads to a truly democratic society.
It explores tasks for adult learners including learning to challenge
hegemony, unmask power, overcome alienation, learn liberation, reclaim
reason and practice democracy. 6 copies.
Miller, Mev and Kathleen P. King eds. Empowering Women Through Literacy:
Views from Experience. IAP. (LC 1660 .E47 2009). A collection of writing
from the ABE field by everyday educators who experience the joys and
challenges, creativity and barriers to acknowledge or integrate
innovative solutions to support women's learning needs in adult basic
education and literacy settings. 7 copies
Rivera, Lorna. Laboring to Learn: Women's Literacy and Poverty in the
Post-Welfare Era. University of Illinois. (LC 1752 .R58 2008). Rivera
argues that poverty is produced and reproduced when women with low
literacy skills are pushed into welfare to work programs and denied
education. She examines how various discourses about individual choice
and self-sufficiency shape the purposes of literacy, how low-income
women express a sense of personal responsibility for being poor and how
neoliberal ideologies and practices compromise the goals of critical
literacy programs. 4 copies.
