Changing Work, Changing Workers: Critical Perspectives on Language, Literacy, and Skills
SUNY Press, Mar 6, 1997 - Business & Economics - 392 pages
Changing Work, Changing Workers looks at U.S. factories and workplace education programs to see what is expected currently of workers. The studies reported in Hull's book draw their evidence from firsthand, sustained looks at workplaces and workplace education efforts. Many of the chapters represent long-term ethnographic or qualitative research. Others are fine-grained examinations of texts, curricula, or policy. Such perspectives result in portraits that honor the complex nature of work, people, and education.
