TRANSITION to COLLEGE administered by Project RIRAL
Did you know. . . College graduates can earn nearly double the wages
of high school graduates, and this income gap will only increase in the
coming years. In order for many adult literacy programs graduates
to reap these benefits and succeed in post-secondary education, they need
additional academic preparation and counseling. The New England ABE-to-College
Transition Project responds to this need by providing free college transition
services that include instruction in college level reading and writing,
algebra, college survival and study skills, time and stress management,
and educational and career counseling. Students who have transitioned to
college also receive mentoring. Transition to College has been funded
by a grant from the Nellie Mae Foundation. Project RIRAL runs their Transition
to College program in Pawtucket, Rhode Island at 175 Main Street. Anyone
who is interested in learning more about this program should contact Marie
Crecca-Romero @ 722-3100 ext. 182. Recruitment is going on
now for the August, 2002 session. Call today to sign up for Transition

in the news April 16, 2002:
NEW YORK DEMANDS EDUCATION FOR WELFARE RECIPIENTS - ACORN and
allies in New York City are promoting a bill (Intro. 93), introduced by
the City Council Speaker and cosponsored by 30 Council Members that would
require the City's Human Resources Administration to conduct thorough assessments
of people's skills and goals, and use these in making work assignments;
honor people's choices to participate in education and training programs
rather than workfare, including ESL, Adult Basic Education, GED preparation,
college, and technical skills programs; and allow recipients without children
to participate in education and training. The first hearing was April 17.
ACORN members spoke in support of the bill at a recent meeting with legislators,
and demonstrated at the office of a for-profit welfare contractor on April
12. Other New York City legislation isprogressing as well, with an ACORN-backed
predatory lending bill reaching its second hearing on April 22, and an
ACORN-supported living wage bill going to its first hearing on April 23.

What Helps Welfare Clients Stay on the Job? A new study of clients transitioning from welfare to work says that the reasons they stick with their jobs have more to do with job characteristics than client characteristics. Jobs that pay well and offer good benefits are more likely to retain workers. The study recommends transitions be "demand led," by employers rather than led by the "supply side," providers of clients. The Jobs for the Future study suggests that local Workforce Investment Boards "organize" delivery of these services and connect them to employers on a regional basis.

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 previous bulletins: REMINDERS, RESOURCES:
Stop the Hate, http://www.stopthehate.net/index1.htm - provides numerous resources of value to anyone working in adult education, community development and/or hoping to consider viable ways in which to approach social change.
Language and Literacy is a Canadian on-line journal for educators interested in a broad range of literacy issues encompassing research and teaching in multimedia, print, and oracy. Available at http://educ.queensu.ca/~landl/
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.
