As well, LR/RI's site has a page devoted to learner writing and information relevant to adult learners. Please, if you have internet access, take some time to explore the LR/RI site (http://www.brown.edu/lrri) and send feedback, suggestions about existing information as well as other sites that youíve seen that LR/RI could add to the site. Especially consider contributing content ? a lesson plan thatís worked, a reflection about your practice, related news or information about the communities in which we live and work.
To get started, if you haven't already, have a look at the current round of inquiry projects, posted on the site . Practitioners are working through developing the proposals you'll see on the site and beginning to collect evidence that will help them examine the questions and concerns they've raised through their projects. Your responses to their work, as well as to anything else on the site, are welcome.

from David Falk:
SCALE is pleased to announce National Literacy Action Week (NLAW) for 2002. We are also excited to introduce our new free, on-line NLAW planning materials to help campus-based literacy programs design effective advocacy, activist and awareness-raising events. NLAW will take place February 1-7. This date commemorates college students' leadership in the Civil Rights Movement's first lunch counter sit-in on February 1, 1960, in Greensboro, North Carolina.
The purpose of NLAW is to strengthen college student activism, to raise awareness and to make change around literacy-related issues. NLAW is SCALE's most prominent and effective organizing initiative for energizing literacy activism across the country. SCALE has created the following free, web-based materials to help you plan National Literacy Action Week on your campus:
Organizing NLAW Events - includes sections on goal setting, planning, dividing up roles, and explaining "how-to-do" a range of suggested events.
Getting Media Coverage -- suggestions on how to spread your message broadly through diverse media such as newspapers, radio and television. (Media exposure is important because it multiplies the impact of the actions you take, and it is a critical tool for public education and awareness-raising.)
In addition, we have written five appendices on activism and awareness-raising :
Defining Advocacy, Activism, and Awareness Raising, Examples of Advocacy, Activism, and Awareness Raising Activities, Why College Students? What Impact Can We Really Have?, Notes on Doing Activism, Principles for a Long Campaign. To check out these new materials, visit SCALE at http://www.readwriteact.org and click on the NLAW button on your bottom left. Please let us know what you think (at firstname.lastname@example.org), and please tell us about the NLAW events you are planning! - David Falk, Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator, SCALE, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (919) 962-6675 ph (919) 962-6020 fax email@example.com

MA GovernorCalls for $5M More for Adult Ed - Acting Massachusetts' Governor Jane Swift's priority list in her first "State of the State" address last week included spending five million dollars more on adult education programs to help people looking to improve job skills. The boost would bring state spending for adult basic skills to a total of $35 million in her budget request for adult basic education programs. Swift said: "These tough times...highlight the importance of adult education and job training to the state's long-term economic success. The answer to this problem is to make adult education and worker training full partners in a larger system of lifelong learning... The budget I submit this month adds five million dollars for adult education. I'm also including new proposals for streamlining and strengthening existing programs." To see what other Governors said about adult education in their "State of the State" messages go to http://www.nga.org/governors and click on"Governor's Speeches."
Can Programs Handle New Citizenship Surge? - A newly noted citizenship surge could cause concern for providers of English as a second language and English literacy/civics services. The Immigration and Naturalization Service says that numbers of foreign residents applying for citizenship are up 61% this year, according to the Washington Post. Applications for US citizenship that started to rise last summer in anticipation of higher fees spiraled after the September 11 tragedy. Causes the Post identifies for the trend include fear of potential problems due to government counter-terrorism activities as well as patriotism by immigrants seeking to express allegiance to their US homeland. - full story online at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A8535-2002Jan19.html

from Jon Randall, Dec 10: At http://www.natcoalitionliteracy.org you can see the latest version of the Omnibus Literacy Legislation concept paper developed by the National Coalition for Literacy. To get to it, click on "Policy and Legislation" on the home page, then on "Commitment Three," and then on "Omnibus Literacy Legislation." Last week the Public Policy Committee of the National Coalition for Literacy met by conference call to consider 49 recommendations submitted from literacy advocates throughout the country. Most of them were approved in one form or another. On December 13th, the National Coalition for Literacy will review and hopefully approve the document at its quarterly meeting in Washington, D.C. From there, we'll ask a Senator or Congressperson to have the paper drawn up as a piece of federal legislation. In the coming weeks, we'll help literacy supporters become familiar with its provisions by highlighting key sections. We'll also be targeting key potential cosponsors during this period. Check out the web site for additional steps in the process and to download the latest version of the concept paper. (You'll need the free program Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you can get from www.adobe.com if you don't already have it on your system.)
Call for Papers: Women and Literacy Edited by Mev Miller
Women's Studies Quarterly is the leading journal on teaching in womenís studies. Thematic issues feature material for specialists and generalists alike, including the most recent scholarship available in jargon-free language; classroom aids such as course syllabi; discussions of strategies for teaching; and up-to-date, complete bibliographies as well as hard-to-find or never-before-published documents and literary materials. Intersections of race and class with gender are of special concern, as are international perspectives. The Quarterly seeks writing for a December, 2003 issue on Women and Literacy. Cross-cultural and international in scope, this issue seeks to include a selection of essays from practitioners in the fields of literacy and adult education as well as from women's studies. Contributions made by literacy practitioners co-authored with women learners or authored by women learners are especially encouraged. This issue encourages writings in a variety of genres, e.g., memoir, personal essays, collections of student writings. Essays may be both reflective of actual practice or theoretical issues. Contributors are asked to include a brief description of your experience in the literacy field.
For the purposes of this issue, "women and literacy" pertains to the
concerns and issues for adult women learners (18+ years of age) who have
pre-basic or limited reading/writing skills in predominately print-based
cultures. This issue seeks to heighten the awareness of womenís studies
academics and feminist educators to the issues of literacy for adult women.
It also strives to explore beyond functional definitions of literacy. Questions
to be addressed may include: What are your definitions of "literacy"?

From Taylor L. Willingham: Help me make the voices of Adult Literacy Students Heard!
The literacy community has been invited to participate in developing a discussion guide on health. This guide is being developed by a network of people who participate in National Issues Forums (NIF), which bring together citizens to discuss important public matters. The NIF network wants to hear your thoughts on health so that we can write a discussion guide that reflects how you and your friends and family are experiencing health-related issues. We will produce a discussion guide that will be written at an easy-to-read level that teachers and tutors can use in lessons and that adult learners and students can use in their study and personal growth. Please copy these questions, share with learners and return your response to the email address below. If access to email is a problem, a regular mail address is also included:
1. What do you value (or what really matters to you) about your own
health and health care?

LR/RI listserv: As some of you know, Literacy Resources has a list serv - an email discussion group available to anyone with access to email in the state (or beyond, as interest warrants). To learn more about the list, or to subscribe, please send an email message to email@example.com. To date, about 30 people have joined the list. Its purpose is to provide a forum for local educators to discuss policy, practice, resources, issues and news related to our work with one another. Unlike the bulletin, which arrives as email, the list is interactive - when you respond to message from the discussion list, everyone else on the list receives your message -- and the conversation, we hope, continues and grows.
VALUE e-list: VALUE has established a valuelearners mailing for email users, hosted by the Western/Pacific Literacy Network, part of the National Institute for Literacy Information and Communication Network System (LINCS). This "e-list" is a way for adult learners who are members of VALUE to communicate with each other. Only adult learners who are members of VALUE can subscribe to this e-list. VALUE is the national organization for adult learners (current or former participants in adult basic skills programs) in the United States. VALUE provides training and other supports to adult learners who want to be more effective leaders in their education programs, communities, and states. This e-list is being managed by members of VALUE's Communications Committee. Subscribers are encouraged to communicate about information, ideas, questions, or problems of interest to them. If you are a member of VALUE and need help subscribing, please contact LR/RI. If you're not a member, but would like to become one, contact LR/RI or visit the VALUE website at http://literacynet.org/value.

Professional development initiative: In 1998, I spent time at the RI Dislocated Worker Program, facilitating classes for teachers there so that they could have an opportunity to observe one another's classes and to reflect on their learning and teaching. (The full text of their reflections is available on the LR/RI web site at Writing from the Field - or contact LR/RI for a hard copy). Please let me know if you would like to participate in this process of professional development. All that's required is your willingness to share your reflections about the observation/learning process for others. I hope to build a block of writing and thinking about this and other forms of our own professional development both through the bulletin and the web site.
Please contact LR/RI if you have information, questions or announcements to share with adult educators in Rhode Island. Bulletins go out at least twice a month; more frequently when there's more to share. To submit information for the next bulletin, please contact LR/RI by phone (401-863-2839), mail (PO Box 1974, Brown University, Providence, RI 02912) or email.
