Literacy Research in PEI - 2006

Literacy Research in PEI: A Reflection - Looking back before moving ahead

: Jessie B. Lees

This project was commissioned by the Literary Research Network (LRN) because research about literacy in PEI was scattered and disconnected. It was difficult to find reports and, therefore, difficult for researchers and policy-makers to build on earlier findings. Members of LRN identified a need to establish a basis for future work. The mandate for this project was to collect research about literacy in PEI published after 1990, build a bibliography and create a synthesis. The intent was to create a useful and simple tool for researchers and policy-makers.

This report is a response to three literacy-research questions: Where have we been? What have we learned? What might we like to know? As the project progressed, questions emerged about the nature of the PEI research and the ways in which it responded, or failed to respond, to the needs of the community. A discussion of issues surrounding research forms a major part of the final section of the report and some recommendations are made.
