Question:

What is the "Housing First" model?

Emily P.
Answer:

"Housing First" refers to a method of ending homelessness. Under Housing First programs, individuals and families are placed into permanent housing without the preconditions that have become typical in many areas: sobriety, income, service participation requirements, etc. The idea is to get an individual or family into safe, permanent housing so that they may then overcome the barriers preventing them from obtaining steady employment, necessary services or treatments, or education. It is a recovery-oriented method that has so far proven effective in keeping individuals and families housed longer.

Question:

What is the difference between active and passive reading?

Emily P.
Answer:

The difference can be likened to the difference between listening to someone speak and simply hearing someone's voice. The active reader is engaged, re-reads passages for further understanding if necessary, and comes away with questions and conclusions about what they've read. The passive reader does not analyze what they've just read and tends to take away less from the text.
