Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Announces Scholarship Competition for Community College Students Seeking Bachelor's Degrees Deadline: February 2, 2004
The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation ( http://www.jackkentcookefoundation.org/ ),a private independent foundation that provides funding to help young people of exceptional promise reach their full potential through education, has announced that it will focus its undergraduate scholarship program on students transferring from community college to pursue four-year degrees at any accredited college or university in the United States or abroad.
The Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship Program is designed to enable community college students to earn 4-year degrees. The Cooke Foundation plans to award approximately 35 scholarships in the spring of 2004 for the 2004-05 academic year and will renew each award in subsequent years based on performance. Recipients may use the award at any accred
ited four-year college or university in the US or abroad to pursue any 4-year degree.
To be eligible for nomination, a student must presently be attending or have graduated since May 1999 from a fully licensed and accredited community college or two-year institution in the U.S.; planning to transfer to an accredited four-year college or university to begin studies in the fall of 2004; and have a cumulative undergraduate grade point average of 3.5 or better (or the equivalent) on a 4.0 scale. Awards will provide funding for tuition, room and board, required fees, and books for the period required to complete the undergraduate degree (generally two years). Each award can total up to $30,000 annually, although the amount will vary based on such factors as tuition. Candidates for the scholarship must be nominated by the faculty representative at their community college or 2-year institution. See the Cooke Foundation Web site for faculty representatives, program guidelines, and application materials:

Using Technology: Evaluating Software Programs http://www.cal.org/ncle/softwareval.htm
Researched and compiled by Lynda Terrill, this Web document does not merely list all available software resources but rather it gives you tools to select and evaluate software - including overarching questions to ask, a form to fill out when evaluating specific resources, and live links to sources of software and other software evaluation sites. The Web collection also includes NCLE's software picks - an annotated list of a few, recommended products. This list will be updated regularly, so check the Web site for additions. NCLE has also developed a Collection on Second Language Acquisition, providing background information about SLA. The collection, compiled by NCLE research associate Donna Moss, highlights NCLE and ERIC resources as well as pertinent organizations, periodicals, and policy issues. Of particular interest is the annotated bibliography of SLA research on learner motivation, interaction, and vocabulary development.

"Adolescents and Literacy: Reading for the 21st Century"
From: ALLIANCE FOR EXCELLENT EDUCATION Dr. Michael Kamil This report documents what is currently known about effective literacy instruction for older students. For the first time in one document, the report brings together the findings of reliable, empirical research on how to improve the reading skills of older students. The report considers the importance and impact of factors such as comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, and alphabetic principle. http://movingideas.c.tep1.com/maabPkQaa3okcb44rKKb/
"Creativity and Education" From: CENTER FOR ARTS AND CULTURE Elizabeth Coleman, Dr. Elliot Eisner, other arts and education experts A creative workforce is seen as the competitive key to innovating in a globalized economy. Arts education tends to encourage making, attending, problem solving, taking responsibility, and experiencing, but the educational system continues to place greater emphasis on mathematics, science, and other "hardcore" disciplines. The authors explore the creative impulses of the arts and artists, and education in America.› http://movingideas.c.tep1.com/maabPkQaa3okgb44rKKb/
"Employer Use of the Publicly Funded Workforce Development System" From:
JOBS FOR THE FUTURE WIA recognizes that success for job seekers requires
a workforce development system that places a high priority on responding
to employer needs. Based on information from employers, their associations,
low-wage workers, and other stakeholders in the public system, this report
examines employer perceptions of what's working and what's not since the
enactment of WIA, and makes recommendations for improvement.› http://movingideas.c.tep1.com/maabPkQaa3okDb44rKKb/

from previous bulletins: REMINDERS, RESOURCES:
SABES Resource Lists Available. From Carey Reid [full message here]:
As you might know, Massachusetts now has a rigorous, stand-alone ABE teacher's license. SABES, the System for Adult Basic Education Support, is a state-wide staff development system funded by MassDOE.
÷[S]months ago I asked if NLA subscribers were interested in helping SABES build resource lists, by standard, in support of teachers seeking the new license here in Massachusetts. Many of you helped out, thank you, and we've also worked with small groups of people locally to build these 29 lists, now with over 150 resources--books, articles, websites, and videos. The lists are now available on SABES's license support website at http://www.sabes.org/license. You can get quickly to the lists by clicking on the "new resources added" link under What's New, or at any time by using the resources link on the bottom of every webpage. When you arrive at the chart listing the 29 standards, click on any standard to go to the resource list we've compiled for it. The lists are annotated; with the annotations, teachers who wish to improve their knowledge and skills in respect to a particular standard can be more assured they're getting the resource they want or need. If the resource can be viewed or downloaded on the Net, we've provided a link.
Additionally, we want to improve these lists, so please email me
if you'd like to suggest additions or changes. BTW, the full list
of resources is also collected in a ProCite bibliography file, so if you
use that software and would like to have your own "instant" database, let
me know and I'll email you the file. As stated earlier, SABES is funded
by the Massachusetts Department of Education. To avoid confusion,
the website is not an official DOE site but rather one of SABES's means
of supporting license-seeking teachers in our state. Links to Massachusetts
DOE webpages, however, are provided on the site.

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.
what do you think? LR/RI has had an online survey on its site forever. Previously, those who may have come across the survey were asked to copy and paste it into an email message, or to print it and complete it. Thanks to the brilliant technical support and inservice learning provided by Brown University, the survey can now be completed on line. I'd be grateful if you could please take the time to complete it. While occasional word comes back about the work LR/RI has done, this survey attempts to be somewhat more systematic in considering the work that's done and the work that needs to be accomplished. Please complete the survey at http://www.brown.edu/lrri - scroll down and click on the link to the survey. If you lack web access and wish to complete the survey, please contact LR/RI to receive one via snail mail or fax.
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.
