The CREATE method is a synthesis of many ideas and methods in community  development, literacy, and adult education. Building on the REFLECT approach as well as ideas from Freire, Mezirow, Vella, Knowles, Malone, and others, CREATE makes use  of proven dialogue-starters, including Chambers’ Participatory Rural Appraisal, to  present literacy as a desirable, useful, and attainable skill for the average adult in developing countries. The CREATE method is specifically designed for adults who find traditional, school-like approaches to literacy to be irrelevant to their lives or who perceive no potential or compelling benefits to their lives from literacy.
