Literacy for Active Citizenship readers

E489-Eltons-2016-WINNER-Web-Banners-BLUE-FINAL_4The Active Citizenship and English (ACE) project*, supported non-EU women to develop their skills and confidence in English as well as the knowledge and confidence to take an active part in everyday life in the UK. As part of the project we produced a series of readers for our learners, and other adults also settling in the UK, which include stories about funny, personal and less typical aspects of everyday life in the UK.

These books were written by learners and volunteers on the ACE project and the supporting activities, which are available to download below, have been developed by the Learning Unlimited team. In June 2016, the Literacy for Active Citizenship readers won the ELTon award for Innovation in learner resources.

They can be ordered in any combination and are priced individually at £4.95, any 10 books will cost £44.55 (a saving of 10%) and any 20 books will cost £84.15 (a saving of 15%). To make an order, please download and complete this booking form.

*The ACE project was led by Learning Unlimited and delivered in partnership with Blackfriars Settlement, Working Men’s College and the UCL Institute of Education, received funding from the European Integration Fund (July 2013 to June 2015).

The books are ideal for mixed level groups, with two graded versions of each story:
