Grassroots Literate Activity Database

This is a New Project and will be underway in Fall 2015.

The Grassroots Literate Activity Database (GLAD) was created by the Writing Program at ISU as a resource to help individuals examine their writing experiences, in order to understand how the acquisition of knowledge and skills in one writing experience may apply to another writing experience and document their learning of these important skills.

The GLAD is an open database that researchers (of all kinds) can use to better understand what people actually do when they engage in different kinds of writing and composing in their daily lives. Participants share details about some different kinds of writing situations, either by filling out an online survey or through face-to-face meetings with one of our researchers.
