The Dayton Literacy Project uses a service- learning course, offered by the University of Dayton, to bring together undergraduates and GED students from the local community. This paper discusses this course's intellectual rationale, its organization, and its work with women receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children. The overall success of the project suggests some of the ways that the discipline of English can be re-envisioned to integrate academic study in the humanities with literacy instruction.
