New resource for Grenada Adult Education Center students & tutors

New Readers Press, the publishing division of Proliteracy, now offers online access to News for You, a newspaper for adult learners. Seven new stories are posted weekly. Based on world and national news events, these articles are written at reading levels 3-6 and ESL levels high-beginning and low-intermediate. One advantage of the online version is that audio is available. We have subscribed for the Grenada Adult Education Center through mid-May 2011. The website is If you are an adult learner or volunteer tutor here, email for the subscription password. Volunteers, you are welcome to use the computers in Room 5 (tutoring room) for this purpose. Also on the website, at the bottom right under "Paper Subscribers" is a PDF file of the Instructor's Guide for the current issue. Volunteer tutors please note that we also receive 10 weekly classroom paper copies and one Instructor's Guide. See John McGee if you are interested in sharing one of his classroom copies with your student. PLEASE NOTE: News for You does not publish the week of Thanksgiving. It also does not publish the last three weeks of the year: the week before Christmas, the week of Christmas, and the week after Christmas.
