Abstract:

An area of interest to the College Sector Committee for Adult Upgrading (CSC) in support of Adult Literacy Curriculum (ALC) development relates to the Essential Skill of Finding Information and the overarching theme of Information Literacy. This is especially relevant to the academically-oriented goal paths of apprenticeship and postsecondary as supported by two separate but related CSC research projects: "Essential Skills for Success ... In College Postsecondary and Apprenticeship Programs" and "Successful Transitions ... To College Postsecondary and Apprenticeship Programs". Recent research points to the notion of information literacy as "task". (Eisenberg, 2008) This paper looks at what the Essential Skill Finding Information looks like at each of the four levels through the lens of different occupations relating to Literacy and Basic Skills/Academic Upgrading (LBS/AU) students' primary postsecondary and apprenticeship goals.
