Recently, a graduate research assistant contacted CASAS about communicating cancer risks to patients with low literacy. A colleague suggested the CASAS Adult Low-level Literacy Curriculum might be a good tool to informally evaluate the literacy skills among study subjects.
CASAS was able to recommend several suitable modules for the study population including Get to Know Your Doctor and Get the Help You Need. Also, guidance on nutrition is available in the modules You Are What You Eat and Planning a Trip to the Store. Beyond these, CASAS offers QuickSearch Online to help educators investigate suitable materials for developing curriculum.
