"Making Sense of Critical Pedagogy in Adult Literacy Education." Sophie C. Degener in The Annual Review of Adult Learning and Literacy (2001), Volume 2, pp. 26-62.

This article provides a theoretical background for those who wish to use critical pedagogy for program design, curriculum development, and selection and use of instructional materials. Degener addresses issues in implementing this approach and recognizes that a continuum of practices exists in ABE programs. She calls for practitioners to reflect on their practices and to consider how they can gradually implement a critical approach to teaching and learning into program and curriculum design, as well as instructional methods.
