25 new Health and Wellness Stories have been posted
These new health and wellness stories were funded by the
National Head Start Family Literacy Center/Sonoma State University

This project was designed to create leveled reading selections that are appropriate for and valued by adult learners.  These materials, combined with the research-proven strategies of repeated reading and guided oral reading, aid in building learners' fluency and comprehension skills.  The materials correspond to Casas 200 - 235.  This project helps adults become better readers and more informed consumers, parents, employees, citizens and community members.  The focus of these reading selections will be on topics such us:  Civics, Employment, Housing, Health, School, Money, and Government. 

This project is funded in part through an EL/Civics Grant from the MN Dept. of Ed - ABE Division and mini-grant from the Minnesota Literacy Council.
