LiteracyAct HANDBOOK

Training people to form communities, a handbook for social workers/teachers/artists willing to improve social/cultural literacy through theatre practices. 

The Handbook stems from the questions raised by LiteracyAct Desk Research, a survey of theatre practices in different European contexts targeting the education or social inclusion of adults or youth.

Drawing on the methodological insights collected from the above experiences, the project aimed at developing workshops in the five European countries of the partner organizations aimed at fostering language learning and social inclusion of migrant people.

The Handbook describes the practices implemented by the partner organisations, starting with an analysis of the needs of the target groups. From a language teaching and pedagogical point of view it also reflects on the reasons for the effectiveness of the proposed methodologies in providing answers to those needs.  Finally it attempts to draw general guidelines for reproducing or implementing these experiences.
