My colleague, Susan Cowles (Coordinator, NIFL LINCS Science and
Numeracy Special Collection) has long urged ABE teachers to use government
science and educational sites with ADULT learners. Here is an opportunity
to follow her lead and try out a new NASA product with your ABE learners.
If you do, please share your experience with doing this with your class.

If you are shy, try some of the on-line activities suggested at

where you'll find several annotations of good sites to use with your ABE

> LineUp With Math enables students to explore and resolve distance-rate-time

> proportional reasoning skills. Students use a web-based interactive
