Read all about it: Case studies of teaching reading to adults in Ireland

This research, carried out by the National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) and the Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT), presents six case studies on reading practice in adult literacy in Ireland. The case studies in this report focus on different aspects of practice including:

  • approaches to teaching and learning,
  • general teaching practices,
  • specific reading strategies, and
  • the use of technology as part of a blended learning approach in the classroom.

The case studies provide valuable insights into how adult learners read, their motivation for learning to read and reading as a social practice. They also provide useful examples of the strategies tutors found useful when working with adults to improve their teaching skills.
