ESOL share - Wednesday, July 13, at 2:00 pm at the Genesis Center, 620 Potters Avenue, Providence. We’ve been talking about basic level literacy, native language literacy and goal setting.. Please join us.
Call for assistance for international educators: December 16-17, 2005, TESOL, Inc. will hold a
Symposium on English Language Teaching in Resource-Challenged Contexts in Dakar, Senegal.
Many EFL teachers in W. Africa have their own personal resource challenges. The costs of traveling to and participating in the symposium are prohibitive for many, so TESOL is waiving registration fees for the event, providing hotel accommodations for up to 40 attendees and five meals for all attendees. For attendees beyond these 40, the room and board costs will be approximately $250 per participant. This cost is being met by various sorts of contributions, including individual contributions. Contributions should be made payable to TESOL, Inc. (with Dakar Symposium on the For notation). And can be sent to Brock Brady at Language and Foreign Studies. American University, Washington, DC 20016-8045. Please be sure to include your return address so that we can acknowle your contribution (all contributions are tax deductible). This is one of several international symposia that TESOL has mounted in order to make conference participation more accessible to members outside the US. TESOL has already offered such symposia in Italy, in Thailand, and will hold a symposium on dual language education in Istanbul, Turkey in September 23. These symposia along with TESOL's new Global Membership rate, which provides a discounted rate to teachers in countries where per capita income is not high, along with many other new global initiatives are finding ways to reach out to the average EFL teacher in ways that we have not been able to engage in before. It’s exciting to see this happen. For symposium details: http://tinyurl.com/9369p.

The Massachusetts Worker Education Roundtable has designed a Workplace Health and
Safety ESOL Curriculum to help ESOL students learn about and exercise their workplace health and safety rights. The curriculum can be adapted for various ESOL levels or Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes.
The curriculum uses learner-centered activities that engage students in discussion, elicit and build
on their experiences as workers and encourage critical analysis and strategies. To view and
download this curriculum, go to http://www.umass.edu/roundtable.
The curriculum is based in part on the Workers Rights Pilot Curriculum by the University of
Massachusetts Labor Extension Program. The Workers Rights Pilot Curriculum is designed for
trainers and other staff of unions and community-based organizations who need to inform
workers of their basic rights under Massachusetts Law. The Roundtable has designed lessons that make the Pilot Curriculum's information more accessible to ESOL students. - Jenny Lee Utech, Massachusetts Worker Education Roundtable

The Adult Literacy Education Wiki: "Wiki-wiki," a Hawaiian word meanimg very, very quickly, refers to a web site where you can immediately and easily add to or change text. The best-known application is the Wikipedia, a multilingual encyclopedia, created and modified daily by thousands of people across the world. We think a wiki can be a useful online environment for adult literacy practitioners, adult learner leaders, and researchers to have ongoing discussions in areas of mutual interest.
The Adult Literacy Education (ALE) Wiki is not a replacement for electronic lists. It is a complement to, and we hope an enhancement of them. Because a wiki is an easily edited document environment, current or past electronic list discussions can be selectively copied to the wiki, continued at any time, and referenced (and linked) in future e- list discussions. For each wiki discussion topic a summary, glossary, and list of research and other references can be created. We hope the ALE Wiki will become a handy electronic reference shelf of definitions and resources for discussions which take place on adult literacy e-lists, and where one could easily find research citations, full-text studies, threaded discussions which have taken place on lists, and other materials organized around specific research topic areas and questions. It could also be an environment where researchers describe their completed and ongoing work, see how practitioners are reacting to or using their research, and see what questions and issues practitioners and adult learner leaders think are important to study.
A wiki, by design, is a participatory environment. We invite you to work on the ALE wiki
with us. We are trying to organize this so that lots of people from the field are involved in adding/changing and editing text, but also so that in each of the areas there is a leader, a topic manager, to help keep things organized. The Adult Literacy Education Wiki, is online at
http://wiki.literacytent.org/index.php/Main_Page To set up an account, and add to the Wiki, go to: http://wiki.literacytent.org/index.php/Special:Userlogin Please e-mail David (firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you have technical questions.
We hope you that you will join other researchers and practitioners who have begun to experiment with it.- David J. Rosen Jackie Taylor Marie Cora Marian Thacher Erik Jacobson

Google Scholar enables searches for scholarly literature, including peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports from broad areas of research. Use Google Scholar to find articles from a variety of academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities, as well as articles available across the web. Google Scholar orders search results by how relevant they are to your query, so the most useful references should appear at the top of the page. This relevance ranking takes into account the full text of each article as well as the article's author, the publication in which the article appeared and how often it has
been cited in scholarly literature. Google Scholar automatically analyzes and extracts citations and presents them as separate results, even if the documents they refer to are not online. This means your search results may include citations of older works and seminal articles that
appear only in books or other offline publications. http://scholar.google.com/

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.
Ö[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
use that software and would like to have your own "instant" database,
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
DOE webpages, however, are provided on the 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.
