    Hello colleagues, I want to invite those who are interested to join the upcoming LINCS webinar on Sept. 30 at 3:00 ET with expert Sabrina Kurtz-Rossi who has co-authored some wonderful resources on the topic of health for adult English learners that are freely available in the LINCS collection. 

    Sabrina Kurtz-Rossi also authored the health literacy section of the Teaching Skills That Matter (TSTM) toolkit which you can access at this link. The health literacy section features an issue brief, a case study, and five excellent lesson plans.
