Adult literacy directly affects success, or lack thereof, in higher education and employment opportunities. Further, improved literacy supports and aids strong communication skills--one of the most important factors in finding, maintaining, and succeeding in your job. Effective communication has the largest impact on both employer and employee satisfaction and can help to build and maintain positive working relationships. It is any wonder that we all need a little support and encouragement to find engaging reading materials when the Pew Research Center reports, "Roughly a quarter of American adults (23%) say they haven’t read a book in whole or in part in the past year, whether in print, electronic or audio form, according to a Pew Research Center survey of U.S. adults conducted Jan. 25-Feb. 8, 2021." This portion of the Reading Research Guide focuses on locating engaging journal and magazine articles to both foster reading and explore helps and hindrances to better literacy skills.
