Title
Assimilation and Accommodation Applied to Vernacular Scriptures-In-Use
Abstract

The principles of assimilation and accommodation are applicable to missions in that the aim of missionary effort involves presenting new concepts to change ideas and behavior. Development of appropriate personal use of vernacular Scriptures is a goal of much mission strategy. Literacy activities play a major role in attainment of that goal. Research literature on cognition and literacy is thus presented to demonstrate that assimilation and accommodation are applicable on three significant levels of literacy activity: (a) A broad culture-wide level, (b) a narrow materials-preparation level, and (c) a midrange program-planning level.
