>Writing for new readers

>If you are working on the Tar Heel Reader project, keep in mind that you are writing for new readers. Many are young adults who have life experiences, but need to learn to read.

You can use your best judgment about suitable subjects, appropriate pictures, and text. There is a lot of information available about how to adapt your writing to help new readers. There are tools to help gauge the reading level of your writing.

As you come across ideas and suggestions for writing for new adult readers, please post them in this discussion. This will help build better guidelines for the Tar Heel Reader project. It will also help us build a library of resources for anyone interested in writing for new readers.
