Using this list for research, practice, classes... / focused discussions
- In a few short weeks the academic year will begin in the northern
hemisphere, so I wanted to take a moment to both
* suggest that this liist might serve as a resource not only for
planning and implementing literacy programs in multilingual contexts,
and also for classes in which literacy, multilingualism, and related
issues are discussed, and
* request how the list could function as more than a unidirectional
news source, drawing more on what members have to offer and addressing
issues you want treated more.
One possibility that comes to mind is to initiate a series of focused
discussions that one or more list members would organize for a period
of two to four weeks. Such focused discussions would address a topic,
perhaps treated in an article or book. These discussions - perhaps a
total of 3 or 4 over the course of the year - could be publicized and
draw in additional specialists to enrich the exchange.
Any suggestions or feedback on any of the above is invited.
