Major Research Activities

Over the next seven years I would be interested in researching effective strategies to develop literacy skills in adults and youth with very low literacy levels. In particular those adults working in resource based industries and teenagers identified as high risk in the school systems.

In 1996, the Ministry of Education of Prince Edward Island released a Strategy for Adult Literacy/Education in Prince Edward Island: Tough Challenges: Great Rewards which identified that low literacy rates are a problem for 40% of the adult population and that 17% can not read at all.
