Women Leading Through Reading: A Guidebook for Discussion and Ac
Women Leading Through Reading©Discussion Circles provide an alternative learning environment using group reading, facilitated discussion, and reflective writing for women in adult basic/literacy education services. This Guidebook provides valuable information for programs and communities that would like to initiate Women Leading Through Reading Discussion Circles in their area.
Women Leading Through Reading© Discussion Circles are adaptable to all kinds of programs for learners at most levels. We have developed a manual, Women Leading Through Reading: A Guidebook for Discussion and Action to get you started. We can also work with you to develop a training or workshop. In 2009, we adapted the program to include more writing. This program, “Women Raising Voices: From Reading to Writing,” uses past issues of Women’s Perspectives in order to encourage student’s to develop their voice and communicate their thinking through writing.
