Lecture: Literature, Learning & Life: Supporting and Empowering Women in Adult Literacy Programs"
Start Date: 4/17/2013Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 4/17/2013End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:
Presented by Jaye Jones (Director, Adult Learning Center).
A growing body of research in the adult literacy field has not only drawn attention to the impact of trauma on the educational experiences of female students, but also highlighted the importance of instructional practices that are more cognizant of emotional health concerns. This lecture will discuss the impact of Women Reading for Education Affinity and Development (WREAD), a reading discussion intervention - grounded in theories of relational-cultural theory (RCT), critical pedagogy and black feminist theory - committed to using literature, dialogue and the group process to promote relationship building and empowerment among African American female adult literacy learners. The literacy gains, improved psychological self-awareness and positive connections experienced by WREAD’s participants also serves to illustrate the restorative potential of emotionally responsive models of teaching practice.
Sponsored by the Women's Studies Program.
