Square Pegs

Square Pegs

I like this graphic because it reminds me that things are changing in adult education and literacy, and that they can change. It is so clear that adults who have been through the school system without success, and who have come back to make another attempt at learning the same skills and content, cannot be taught by the same methods that failed them in the first place.

The graphic is by Matt Taylor, who is a job developer/educator at CareerworksNova in Truro, Nova Scotia. The NSSAL he refers to in the bottom section is the Nova Scotia School of Adult Learning, the province-wide organization for the delivery of adult literacy and adult basic education.

Thanks, Matt, for permission to use your graphic here.
