      >For years, the Pueblo of Zuni has been involved in a challenging
      >battle to protect the sacred Zuni Salt Lake (Ma'k'yayanne) from Salt
      >River Project (SRP), a large utility company based in Phoenix, AZ.
      >Over the past few months, SRP has intensified efforts to begin
      >development of an 18,000 acre coal strip mine approximately ten
      >miles from Ma'k'yayanne. As part of the proposed Fence Lake Coal
      >Mine project, SRP plans to pump groundwater at a rate of 80-90
      >gallons a minute over the next 40 years. A number of independent
      >hydrologists believe that underground aquifers supply both water and
      >salt to Ma'k'yayanne, and that any pumping would drain the lake and
      >destroy it. Zuni legend tells of the deity Ma'l'okyattsik'i (Salt
      >Woman) who is believed to live at Ma'k'yayanne. The legend says
      >that if Ma'l'okyattsik'i is desecrated in any way, she will leave
      >Ma'k'yayanne with her sacred salt, never to return. SRP also plans
      >to build a 40 mile long railroad corridor between the mine site and
      >the Coronado Generating Station near St. John's, AZ. The railroad
      >would destroy a number of ancient burial sites and salt-gathering
      >trails across what is now officially known as the "Sanctuary Zone,"
      >an area where warring tribes could set aside hostilities to worship
      >and gather salt in peace. The Sanctuary Zone is eligible for
      >inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places as well as the
      >State Register. Recently, Ma'k'yayanne and the Sanctuary Zone were
      >added to the National Trust's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places
      >listing. A special documentary, hosted by Roger Mudd, will air on
      >the History Channel on July 12, 2003. The ultimate hope is that
      >this program will bring attention to the plight of Ma'k'yayanne, and
      >that the Interior Department will reconsider approval of the federal
      >mine permit made in July of 2001, and that SRP will consider
      >abandoning their plans for the Fence Lake Coal Mine. For additional

      >on the Ocean
      >at Pawleys Island, SC
      >The Courage to Teach Formation Principles and Practices Retreat is
      >people who want to experience a retreat based on the work of Parker
      >Palmer, to learn more about how to create evocative and trustworthy
      >spaces for learning and reflection, and to bring greater depth to

      >Education and Community of Coastal Carolina University. It will be
      >led by three national Courage to Teach facilitators, Rebecca

      >Sally Z. Hare and Russ Moxley. The location is the Sea View Inn, a
      >charming inn on the Atlantic Ocean on Pawleys Island, S.C., between
      >Charleston and Myrtle Beach.
      >For the first three days of the seminar, we'll be together in
      >giving us the opportunity to experience the formation process as
      >in the nationally-known Courage to Teach program. In large group,
      >small group, and solitary settings, we will explore the intersection
      >of our
      >personal and professional lives, making use of stories from our own
      >journeys, reflection on professional practice, and insights from
      >storytellers, and various wisdom traditions. Reflecting on our
      >in retreat, the last two days we will look at the underlying
      >and practices of formation and explore how participants might use
      >in their own work - as part of professional development activities,
      >facilitating circles of trust with colleagues or friends, or in work
      >renewal and cultural change within schools or other organizations.
      >The retreat will begin at 6 pm, Sunday, November 16, and end with
      >lunch about 1 pm, Thursday, November 20. This program is open to
      >persons who feel drawn to living divided no more, to exploring the
      >intersection of their inner work in the outer world. It is
      >recommended for educators, diversity and health professionals,
      >business and community leaders, and others with an interest in the
      >writing of Parker Palmer. The program is both for persons who have

      >those who have completed a two-year Courage to Teach program and
      >want renewal or a "refresher".
      >About The Courage to Teach and the Center for Teacher Formation:
      >Under the guidance of Parker J. Palmer, author of The Courage to
      >the Fetzer Institute created The Courage to Teach (CTT) program,
      >piloting an approach to professional development called "teacher
      >formation." The formation process invites educators to reclaim
      >their own wholeness and vocational clarity, and makes connections
      >between the renewal of a teacher's spirit and the revitalization of
      >public education.
      >The Center for Teacher Formation, established in 1997, is committed
      >developing and expanding the work of teacher formation-a process
      >offers educators an opportunity to explore their inner lives, to
      >the identity and integrity from which good teaching
      >and leadership come. Though there is strong interest in this kind of
      >renewal at all levels of education and in other professions as well,
      >the Center's focus is on professionals related to K-12 public
      >schools, on
      >whom our society depends so heavily but for whom we provide so
      >encouragement and support. For the first time this year, the Center
      >expanded its work to include leaders in a limited number of others

      >15. A Call for Papers: Ethnicity, Race, Gender, Class, and Youth
      >Teachers College Record announces a call for papers
      >for a special issue on Ethnicity, Race, Gender,
      >Class, and Youth Development edited by Jean Anyon,
      >Ratna Ghosh, and Roslyn Arlin Mickelson. This issue
      >will feature papers reporting on original research
      >regarding the development of youth, particularly in
      >urban contexts.
      >As urban youth develop, they create meaning,
      >identity, and a sense of themselves in the world by
      >utilizing a variety of sources, including, perhaps
      >most centrally, existing social constructions of
      >ethnicity, race, gender, and social class. By what
      >methods do youth create these meanings? How do they
      >attain a sense of the future and its opportunities
      >or hazards that leads them to appropriate elements
      >of the environment in ways that are either positive
      >or self-destructive? How do they define these and
      >other options? What strategies do they employ to
      >deal with poverty, racial, gender, or other
      >discrimination and the disdain of dominant groups
      >in society? What qualities of their communities and
      >neighborhoods do they utilize as they grow? How do
      >they negotiate the often rough terrains of school,
      >the streets, or incarceration? Finally, how do
      >urban youth develop a critical account of their
      >societies, and how do they, or can they, move from
      >cynicism or alienation to an informed resistance to
      >The editors are interested in all of these and
      >other questions about the development of urban
      >youth. Manuscripts that are submitted should engage
      >these or other important issues. The scholarship
      >must employ more than one of the following:
      >original empirical research (qualitative and/or
      >quantitative), sophisticated theorizing, political
      >economy, comparative study, or historical analysis.
      >Manuscripts should be submitted using the TCR
      >online submission system. Indicate that the paper
      >is for the special issue on youth development.
      >Review of manuscripts will begin immediately and
      >continue until May 1, 2004.
