Dear Colleagues,
It is my pleasure to announce the recipients of the National Coalition for Literacy's Literacy Leadership Awards for 2018.

This new award is intended to recognize an individual who has made significant contributions as an advocate for adult literacy over a full professional career.

Sharing the LINCS Learner Center in honor of Adult Education and Family Literacy Week

Dear Colleagues:

September 26 to October 1 is Adult Education and Family Literacy (AEFL) Month (just ahead of Health Literacy Month...more on that coming).  If you want to hear what programs are doing to celebrate, visit #AEFLWeek (it's pretty interesting).

And, consider sharing the LINCS Learner Center page with teachers and students in honor of the week.  Several health resources can be accessed from the homepage:, ChooseMy Plate, and MedlinePlus.  They are easy to reach when they're all in one place!

Free Webinar on Reading Comprehension and Adult Learners

Do your adult learners struggle with reading comprehension? Do they read, reach the bottom of a paragraph, and have no idea what they’ve just read? In support of National Adult Education and Family Literacy Week, Digital Promise's Adult Learning Initiative's focus this month for our free webinar series is on helping adult learners develop the complex comprehension processes associated with strong reading skills.
