Writing Text to Reach Audiences for Lower Literacy Skills
The C-Bulletins were developed by C-Change for communication practitioners who develop and adapt SBCC materials and activities for audiences with lower literacy skills. Each bulletin offers practical, how-to assistance and a list of additional resources.
This bulletin explains how to write text for audiences with lower literacy skills who often have difficulty making sense of SBCC materials that rely on written text. It discusses readability formulas and how and why they are used to measure reading levels of text.
