Literacy is a social and cultural practice. The tools and materials that have been developed to support adult learning in New Zealand, including the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy are based on this understanding, along with what is known about developing expertise. You can read more about this on pages 12 - 14 of the Background Information to the progressions. Click here to read the online version of these pages.

It is important to find out about learners’ language and literacy practices so that you can take account of their strengths and interests when you are planning how to address their needs.

The best way to begin to know more about learners is to have a one-to-one structured conversation with them.
