We transform English-speaking, low-literate adults, who live in Salt Lake or Davis Counties in Utah, into skilled, passionate, habitual, critical readers, writers, and mathematicians. We also educate community volunteers to work one-on-one or in group settings with these adult learners. For more information, see www.LiteracyActionCenter.org.

Founding Leaders: Birth Places
Revolutionary War map from http://etc.usf.edu/maps/pages/2600/2685/2685.htm
This week we talked about how everyone
in the early years of the New World was either:
a. a native (that is, an Indian),
b. an immigrant from another country, or
c. a captive forced to live here.
As such, this conversation led to our speculation about the birth
places of eight of our founding leaders: George
Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin,
John Jay, Aaron Burr, and Alexander Hamilton.
