Looking forward, looking back – what’s worked, what changes are
we considering in our practice?
This is an open discussion group –
practitioners with an interest in adult ESOL are all welcome.
Do you work with families enrolled in
the Family Independence Program (FIP)?
Major changes have been made to FIP that will cause up to 4,000
children to lose their cash assistance as of August 1, 2008 .
- Children are no longer entitled to cash assistance once their
parents have reached their 5 year time limit.
- Citizen children whose parents are not eligible for FIP because
of immigration status are only entitled to receive FIP for 5 years.

Many practitioners struggle with helping adult learners stay engaged in
learning. Family, work and other concerns can often make it
difficult for learners to stay focused on educational programs.
External constraints present challenges as well.
Join classroom teachers and administrators considering these issues and
share both concerns and possibilities.
We've begun to consider solution and practices to support
learning for all.

The Extending Mathematical Power (EMPower) curriculum and
professional development opportunities were created specifically with
adult numeracy teachers and their diverse student
populations in mind. The curriculum fosters a pedagogy of
learning for understanding and challenges students and teachers to
extend their ideas of what it means to do math. It also promotes a
community in which students are encouraged to work
collaboratively, explore open-ended investigations, and share multiple
ways for solving real-world problems.
(see, e.g. http://www.keypress.com/documents/ALookInside/EMPower/EMPower_SeekingPatternsSB.pdf)

DOL Seeks State Comments on WIA Planning Process
The Department of Labor (DOL) is seeking comments by July 7 on
modified Workforce Investment Act (WIA)/Wagner-Peyser State Planning
Guidance for Program Year (PY) 2009. The guidance includes
a new national strategic direction and reflects changes
made by Perkins Act reauthorization.
It applies to stand-alone or unified plans that include WIA title
I and Wagner-Peyser programs for the rest of the PY 2005-PY 2009
planning cycle. All WIA state plans and waivers will expire June
and states must submit a one-year extension of current plans, or
a modified plan, to DOL. This fall DOL will publish final guidance
covering the period through 2009, and solicit fresh ideas from states
this summer on state planning guidance for PY 2010 and subsequent
Uses Statewide Transfer Credits
The Pennsylvania Department of Education <http://www.pde.state.pa.us/>
has implemented state law to create a seamless statewide postsecondary
transfer system. The law requires Pennsylvania's
14 community colleges and 14 universities in the Pennsylvania
State System of Higher Education (PASSHE)
<http://www.passhe.edu/> by June 30, to adopt equivalency
standards that create at least 30 hours
of foundation courses easily transferrable to any participating
institution. Students who successfully complete courses from the
Transfer Credit Framework <http://www.patrac.org/LinkClick.aspx?link=323>
can transfer those credits to any of the participating colleges
and universities <http://www.patrac.org/LinkClick.aspx?link=301>
and have the credits counted toward graduation.
Assessments Developed by
Teachers and Students (June 16 - July
17) Teachers will learn about tools to check
day-to-day student progress, dynamic forms of assessment, and how to
involve students in assessment design.
These courses combine top-quality content on student assessment in
adult education and literacy (developed by Carey Reid and John Strucker
from World Education) with an easy-to-use online format (ProLiteracy's
IntraLearn learning management system). In these facilitated courses
teachers will explore assessment concepts and strategies in-depth
through online activities, readings, and discussion boards, all with an

New England Transitions to
College and Careers Pilot
The Nellie Mae Education Foundation seeks organizations and
institutions in the six New England states that provide Adult Basic
Education, ESOL, GED or Diploma classes as a primary
educational service and that also currently offer program
elements that support adult learners transitioning to college. The
collaborating college should have a history of coordinating activities
with key health care services employers.
This Pilot Program will be administered in partnership with the
New England Literacy Resource Center (NELRC) and will focus on helping
adult learners access and persist in postsecondary
education in pursuit of select high-growth occupations in health
care fields that have developed career pathways and pay
NELRC will assist the Foundation in selecting grantees and will
provide them with technical assistance, training, and support for
program implementation. Planning grants of up to $10,000 will
be awarded to four to six partnerships for the period from August
– December 2008. Partnerships that complete their proposed planning
activities will be eligible for up to $80,000 to implement
the pilot program from January – December 2009.

The Learning First Alliance recently interviewed
best-selling author Dave Eggers about the urban tutoring centers he has
helped establish in 7 major cities
nationwide. Those centers focus on student writing for children
aged 6 to 18, and they also work with teachers to promote better
writing instruction in schools. Eggers describes
the centers' success in engaging communities in public education.
The centers operate behind storefronts that draw people off the streets
and help program directors recruit
volunteer tutors -- who now number in the thousands. The centers
also encourage strong family involvement. Eggers describes his new site
-- which encourages people to tell their stories of successful
community involvement in public schools. Eggers also describes his
forthcoming documentary on the challenges
faced by public school teachers.
Building the future of
family involvement: Historically, policymakers' and schools'
investments in family involvement have been limited and inconsistent,
due to shifting political ideologies, issues of control and
accountability, and the challenging nature of building and sustaining
meaningful family –school relationships. Today, educators, researchers
and parents alike see the need and opportunity to move beyond
individual programs to continuous and systemic family involvement
efforts. Research is beginning to document what years of field
experience show: Families are involved not just in schools and homes,
but in a variety of settings. From the everyday "teachable moment" to
formal educational institutions, families can encourage learning
everywhere -- in museums, on playgrounds, and in grocery stores, to
name just a few settings. Broadening the concept of family involvement
to include all of these settings provides more opportunities for
families to support learning, reduces or compensates for barriers to
traditional forms of involvement, and promotes continuity of
involvement. Families can and should be a centerpiece of what we call
complementary learning -- a systemic approach that intentionally
integrates school and nonschool supports to promote educational and
life success. This double issue of The Evaluation Exchange from the
Harvard Family Research Project examines the current state of and
future directions for the family involvement field in research, policy,

Advocacy Efforts in New England by the New England Literacy Resource
at World Education
This new report takes stock of the program, policy and
legislative context for adult education in each of the six New England
states. It discusses local and statewide advocacy strategies by
adult educators. The findings show that adult education
advocacy efforts in New England are multi-faceted, and growing in
sophistication and reach. The report discusses the principal
challenges and related promising strategies revealed through
interviews with leading adult education advocates in New England.
They are grouped into four areas:
