Literacy program for teens, adults

Bookshare / Benetech is announcing a new online instructional literacy program for adolescent and adult beginning readers, Route 66.

Key features include:

* reading, writing, and word study in a flexible, dynamic, internet-based instructional program.
* age-, interest-, and ability-appropriate books
* no special training to teach literacy other than basic web navigation skills
