New Guide: Family Health and Literacy

Posted by on December 8, 2006

World Education in collaboration with the National Institute for Literacy has published a guide ?Family Health and Literacy: A guide to easy-to-read health education materials and websites for families.? This document provides ideas on how to introduce health, how to engage learners, how to enhance literacy and language acquisition using health, and how to collaborate with health organizations. There are also listings of easy-to-read health information, lesson plans and teaching activities, online activities to use in class, and activities and games for parents and children to do together. Health educators and practitioners can also benefit from the easy-to-read health information, online activities, and ideas for collaborating, which include tips on communicating clearly with adults with limited literacy skills. Many PA NEN members might find this guide useful when reaching low-income audiences.
