First Literacy Grant Funded Project

Framingham Adult ESL Plus (FAESL) used the First Literacy Grant to develop and implement a program-wide curricular initiative that helped immigrant parents learn how to guide themselves and their children through the challenges of today’s social media environment. The many extant resources that aim to inform parents on digital citizenship and raising digital natives assume higher levels of cultural and linguistic proficiency than many adult ESL learners possess. FAESL assembled a curriculum writing team to make sheltered materials to be piloted by teachers in Framingham Adult ESL Plus classes, then revised and shared with others as well.
