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 ongoing for the August, 2002 session. Call today to sign up for Transition to College.
Inquiry projects - completed reports from this round of projects are posted/being posted on LR/RI's inquiry site http://www.brown.edu/lrri/inq2001.2.html - as well, new projects will be funded for the coming academic year. A call for proposals will be issued soon; deadline for submissions is September 13. An overnight retreat, a required component of the inquiry process, will be held on October 15 and 16. Details to follow.
computer drop in sessions - Due to changes in Brown's computing department, a computer lab will not be available for drop in sessions this summer. Demand for the sessions has not grown over the past few years - possibly because more people have access to the technology, or possibly because more folks have learned to navigate the internet. Whatever the cause, if you or your students are interested in learning more about using online technology - email, the internet - options are available. You can schedule time with LR/RI at your convenience to learn more about available online resources, consider working with a group of teachers or learners - in your lab, or in others that may become available to us as demand warrants. Although there will not be a regularly scheduled Friday morning session, there are other ways of addressing interest in exploring the internet. Please call or email LR/RI if you are interested in learning more about using the internet to support your own work in adult education, or just to learn more about the resources available online generally.
Read Across Rhode Island :Dear Fellow Adult Education Providers: Have you heard the news? The "Read Across Rhode Island" project is underway. Next spring, all Rhode Islanders will be encouraged to read David Baldacci's selected coming-of-age novel Wish You Well. Many exciting classroom and public events are in the works for Rhode Island's first all-state book read, such as author talks, a Paw Sox game, and a waterfire featuring Appalachian music. How can adult education students participate? Come to the next meeting of the Education Subcommittee to find out. June 28 at 9am, most likely at the Warwick Public Library on Sandy Lane. Representatives on this committee include educators from high schools and adult ed agencies as well as librarians, but the number of adult educators on the committee is very small right now, so joining this group is crucial to our learners' participation! And by the way, it's a secret from the general public for the time being!! Hope to see you at the next meeting. If you have any questions about the adult ed piece of this project, please give me a call at 455-8041. Thank you! Denise DiMarzio , Providence Public Library

Some of the other libraries awarded this grant are in Arizona, Vermont, Massachusetts, Wyoming, Georgia and New Jersey. The Providence Public Library is the recipient of the 2001 National Award for Library Service for outstanding community service. We would like to offer at least 12-17 Providence Cambodian families this rewarding opportunity. Initially families attend all sessions together for discussion and sharing with translation assistance of Pich Chhouen, President of the Cambodian Society of RI and Michael Chuon, our south side neighborhood connection at Knight Memorial. After the stories are assembled, Jen Frisbee, a computer teacher at PPL will assist teens in developing their web sites.

"Dear Fellow students: As a student ambassador and advocate I am doing another survey to help students find services, programs, and/or software programs that might help you learn and become more knowledgeable and a more productive member of your community. The content of this survey will better reflect the diverse needs and levels of all students, including English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL for short).

CALL FOR PAPERS 2003 TESOL Journal Special Issue
Theme: Promoting L2 Literacy, Coeditors: Nancy Clair and Marjorie Terdal
Literacy is recognized today as more than just reading and writing ability and more complex than the simple dichotomy of "literate or illiterate." Rather, literacy is an extremely complex notion that is increasingly defined by the contexts in which it occurs and the factors that affect it, including economic, political, social, and cultural factors. For these reasons, ESOL researchers and practitioners must address the variety of literacies that learners seek to develop. These ESOL literacy learners are very diverse, representing not only children acquiring literacy in their L1 and L2s simultaneously but also adults who may lack or have limited literacy in their L1 and who are developing literacy in English for vocational, functional, critical, expressive, sociocultural, or general academic purposes.
The Autumn 2003 issue of TESOL Journal will focus on classroom-based
practices and current scholarly perspectives related to ESOL literacy development.
The purpose of this special issue is to bring together a variety of perspectives
and current practices related to ESOL literacy education from the range
of settings where it occurs, including ESL and EFL contexts; in schools,
workplaces, community centers, and homes; and with children and adults.
These topics listed are meant to be illustrative, not restrictive. Submissions
may address related areas or more than one of the areas. Submissions are
welcome in all departments: feature articles, perspectives, reviews, tips
from the classroom, and heard on the Web. All submissions must conform
to regular submission guidelines, with the exception that three hard copies
are requested of all submissions, regardless of the department. Submissions
should be sent to the address below. The deadline for submissions is January
6, 2003. Send queries and material to: Marjorie Terdal, Applied Linguistics,
Portland State University, P.O. Box 751, Portland, OR 97207 USA, Queries
only to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
