Understanding Health Care Reform

Do you think health care reform is a bit perplexing? If so,  you can imagine how much more confusing it might be for someone with limited English proficiency or low literacy skills.

In Case of Disaster

Oklahoma is the place to be if you enjoy crazy weather. Did you know that FEMA has emergency tips available in a dozen other languages besides English?

An Excellent Resource for Citizenship

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History (NMAH) recently launched Preparing for the Oath: U.S. History and Civics for Citizenship. You can read and listen to short, interesting civics lessons; after each lesson, there is a related question from the pool of possible citizenship test questions. You can also practice taking the ten-question citizenship test.

Write for Our Newsletter

In our quarterly newsletter Lit Bits, there is a section dedicated to the writings of adult learners and tutors called Learner to Learner. This section is a place for tutors to share learning strategies that they’ve found to be successful with their learners, or brag about their learner's latest achievement. Adult learners can submit book reviews, creative writings, letters, recipes, stories, or other items they’d like to share with other people in the program.
