Mellard, D., Patterson, M.B., & Prewett, S. (2007). Reading practices among adult education participants. Reading Research Quarterly, 42(2), 188-213.

Topic: Adult Literacy
Subcategory: Research
Summary: This study of adult literacy learners identified differences in reading practices (e.g., books, newspapers, magazines, technical materials, and work documents) by age, gender, learning disability status, and reading level, as well as complex interactions among these learner characteristics. Implications for adult educators include matching curricular materials to salient learner characteristics to enhance the learners’ persistence and success.
