Focus on Basics

Focus on Basics was the quarterly publication of the National Center for the Study of Adult Learning and Literacy. It presented best practices, current research on adult learning and literacy, and how research was used by adult basic education teachers, counselors, program administrators, and policy makers. Focus on Basics was dedicated to connecting research with practice, to connecting teachers with research and researchers with the reality of the classroom, and by doing so, making adult basic education research more relevant to the field.

World Education published three additional issues of Focus on Basics, on Health & Literacy Partnerships, Numeracy, and Learning Disabilities.
