      Here are three lists on Yahoogroups that may be of interest or
      possibly of use to educators:

      Assimilation
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Assimilation/
      Assimilation is a hot topic now, being discussed in contexts like
      Spanish-speaking immigrants in the US, and Muslim communities in West
      Europe. Yet the term, as widely as it is used, is often tossed around
      without a clear definition. Moreover at the dawn of the 21st century
      and in the face of globalization, movement of populations, ease of
      communication, tension between greater multiculturalism and recurring
      xenophobias, and other factors as diverse as survival of
      minority/indigenous cultures and threats of terrorism, are old
      notions of "assimilation" valid anymore? Is it time for a new
      paradigm? What?

      Multilingual_Literacy
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Multilingual_Literacy/
      A UN literacy decade began in 2003, but what will this mean for
      literacy in multilingual contexts and for minority languages? This
      list is open to a range of topics related to multilingualism,
      bilingual education, strategies and approaches for literacy training,
      measures of literacy in polyglot societies, importance of literature
      for multilingual literacy, terminology (e.g., multiliteracy vs.
      pluriliteracy), etc.

      MINEL
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MINEL/
      MINEL = "Maternal, Indigenous, National & Ethnic
      Languages" / "MINority & Endangered Languages." The list's purpose is
      to consider development and revitalization of languages around the
      world. List traffic so far includes mostly news and information on
      diverse languages, events, and publications.


      You are invited to join any and all of these groups. They are all
      open-archive, which means you can browse the archives even without
      joining, and get RSS feeds as well.
