The Story Shares Literacy Project

Last year I participated in the Story Shares Literacy Project, an innovative program that seeks to make unique reading materials available to teens and young adults who struggle with reading. The concept behind the project is to create short books on subjects that would be of interest to readers in this age group, but at the appropriate skill level. You can read more about my experience with the project on the Story Shares blog:
