The Women's Series: Kids Alone, Safe at Home. Child Care Choices. Tutor's Guide.
This packet consists of a tutor's guide and the first two booklets of "The Women's Series." The series is part of a program of a national literacy campaign dedicated to women who cannot read well enough to use literacy skills in everyday life. The two booklets focus on child care because that is such a major concern for so many women. They are written at a fourth- to sixth-grade reading level, using basic language and clear illustrations. The titles of the two booklets are "Kids Alone, Safe at Home" and "Child Care Choices." Each concludes with a checklist for the user to complete. The tutor's guide offers suggestions for how to use the booklets in the series. It contains general tips as well two sections that suggest a variety of other specific activities for use with each booklet. All activities teach reading, writing, and thinking skills while helping learners apply relevant information to their own lives. (YLB)
