National Center for the Study of Writing and Literacy Occasional Paper    

OP 34. Community Literacy

By Linda Flower, Lorraine Higgins, Wayne C. Peck

Summary: This paper articulates a vision of community literacy that can serve as a source of renewal for urban communities. Based on the experiences of the Community Literacy Center on Pittsburgh's North Side, the authors examine the social and historical context of urban settlement houses, discuss how the concept of community literacy is positioned within other established theories of literacy as they relate to community building, and examine a set of guiding principles that have emerged after five years of reflecting on community literacy in practice. January, 1994; 40 pages.
