Picture Stories for Adult ESL Health Literacy Created by Kate Singleton Fairfax County (Virginia) Public Schools The picture stories are: Designed to help ESOL instructors address topics that affect the health and well-being of their students. Useful for beginner and low-literacy students. Newcomers to the United States and adults with lower literacy tend to have the least awareness of and access to health care services, thereby running the risk of more serious and chronic health outcomes.
