As DREAMLEIGH LLC, my project is a curriculum unit aligned with General Education Diploma (GED™) Exam, College and Career Readiness, and Common Core standards and designed for adults with low literacy. The curriculum unit will engage adults with a focus on social justice issues and values to support adults as everyday citizens while also improving their literacy skills.
There are at 800,000 adults in Atlanta who are "functionally illiterate." There are a number of organizations working to address illiteracy in Atlanta, and DREAMLEIGH LLC's project is designed to lend a hand to the same movement to close the literacy gap in Atlanta --- and make Atlanta more Awesome!
