Reading Skills for Healthcare Workers – Fluency
This website from SW ABE Marshall provides 175 CNA (certified nursing assistant) and general healthcare passages and audios for adult readers at grade levels 5.5 to 8.5 (Intermediate level). Readability is measured by ATOS for CCRS (College & Career Readiness Standards) alignment. All of these materials:
- were written by licensed language arts or ESL teachers, most with pre-CNA course experience
- are intended to supplement direct instruction and support fluency and comprehension skills
- include pre-reading questions, definitions of healthcare or high-frequency vocabulary, and text-dependent questions
In addition, all selections are recorded in 3 speeds for fluency development.
