What's New at the Equipped for the Future Center?

The EFF Center continues to work with programs and states nationally on
a 
variety of projects.  You can see what's happening by checking out the 
calendar of events at: 
http://www.nifl.gov/cgi-bin/lincs/calendar/calendar.cgi?filter_sc=5

It has now been a year since we launched the new EFF website: 
http://eff.cls.utk.edu/

There have been many updates made in the past year so I would encourage
you
to take a look if you haven't visited recently.

Here are just a few of those updates:
1)      Two publications have been added: 
http://eff.cls.utk.edu/products_services/online_publications.htm

a.      The Winter 2005 issue of HOT Topics with a focus on the standard

Use Math to Solve Problems and Communicate.
       b. Research to Practice Note #4: An Approach to Assessment Based
on 
Cognitive Science
2)      The EFF Teaching/Learning Toolkit has several new Examples and 
supporting Tools/Supports: http://eff.cls.utk.edu/toolkit/
The Toolkit will continue to be a growing resource with more examples in

different settings (ABE, ESOL, Family Literacy, GED, Corrections) and
with 
different standards.

3)      Each of the EFF Standards now has a downloadable pictorial 
representation available courtesy of Tacoma Community House in
Washington. 
The pictures were originally developed for use with ESOL learners but 
certainly have other 
applications.  http://eff.cls.utk.edu/fundamentals/16_standards.htm

      4) Updated Spanish translations for the Standards:
