Critical Literacy and Adult Learners

This website article provides a solid and thorough overview of critical literacy and its applications in adult learning.  I really appreciate the summaries of key principles, theorists, and applications.  Critical literacy has its roots in constructivist learning theory, one of the theories that we touched on in 3100 but has developed in ways that recognize the importance of diversity, learner agency and voice, as well as the border literacies and digital tools that learners utilize.
