Journeys: Support Notes for Adult Learners

As part of Book Week Scotland 2015, Scottish Book Trust has published an anthology of writing by the Scottish public, as well as commissioned authors, called Journeys. With short stories, poems and comic strip illustrations, the anthology depicts a wide variety of intriguing and inspiring journeys from the physical to the emotional and occasionally a mixture of the two! Thousands of copies of Journeys will be available free during Book Week Scotland, and eBook and audiobook versions are also available for download

Journeys contains inspirational reading material for adult learners. These brief support notes offer ideas on how to use some of the stories with adult learners in relation to reading, writing and encouraging them to tell their own tales. The common thread throughout is that people’s stories come from a variety of sources and that everyone has a story to tell whether they know it or not!
