The Learning Resources site
offers web-delivered instruction using current and past CNN San Francisco
bureau and CBS 5 - KPIX (CBS Broadcasting) news stories. Western/Pacific
LINCS (part of the National Institute for Literacy's LINCS Project),
and Literacyworks has partnered
with news agencies to develop an online literacy site that benefits all learners and instructors.
This material is intended for adult literacy and educational purposes.
Though the intended audience is adults, instructors and learners (of
all ages) are encouraged to use this material to promote better literacy.
Each module includes the
full text of each story and interactive activities to test comprehension.
The learner can choose to read the text, listen to the text, and view
a short video clip of the story. Each module is designed for ease of
use so the learner can use it independently. The instructor can also
incorporate any story into class activities and lesson plans.
