This is part of the 67 day, 18 week set of lesson plans that I created for the two semesters I taught GED/HiSET prep and Adult Basic Education at the San Diego Continuing Ed./Community College District.

Some Action Items in support of literacy and hope that you can take right now:
1.) Download some public domain version of a classic book, or grab your favorite version of the The Arabian Nights (yes, I know: the 1001 Nights was by Antoine Galland, who made up a few stories and inserted them into older Arabic and Persian stories that may have come from India, but still…) or any other story, in an original language, if possible!
2.) Read a page,
3.) Share your thoughts on that page, perhaps as an update on your GoodReads reading,
4.) Write a novel that references a classic book, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.
Other ideas welcome on how to #EndPoverty, #EndHomelessness, & #EndMoneyBail, starting with improving these four parts of our good #PublicDomainInfrastructure:

3. #UniversalHealthCare, and
