What Do I Read Next?

Literacy is an important skill required to function in our society today.   Literacy is not a single skill used in the same manner for all types of printed and written information.  Every adult needs a range of literacy skills to achieve his or her personal goals to pursue a successful career, and to play an active role as a citizen. Indeed, high levels of literacy can enable individuals to keep pace with changing educational expectations and technologies as well as support the aspirations of their families.  It is evidence that without literacy, one can barely survive.  It is my desire to promote life-learning literacy skills to the learning community.
