En Camino: On Our Way
Through a generous grant from the National Center for Family Literacy’s Family Literacy-Community College Partnership Initiative, a collaboration between LaGuardia Community College and Make the Road New York was formed with the goal of promoting successful pathways into post-secondary education for non-traditional students and their families. As part of the grant, faculty created lesson sets for use with En Camino materials online (2013). Lessons are designed for class or computer lab use in ESOL or ABE/HSE adult education classes at all levels of proficiency. Find En Camino materials used in the lessons online at http://familieslearning.org/interactive_tools/en_camino.
