July 22, 2008, NYC -- The Council for Advancement of Adult Literacy
announces the release of a new resource called Findings in ESL: A
Quick Reference to Findings of CAAL Research on ESL Programs at
Community Colleges. As the name indicates, the publication, written
by CAAL vice president Forrest P. Chisman, is the final in a series
from CAAL on its ESL research since 2004. Due to the high ongoing
interest in ESL service provision, the purpose of Findings in ESL is
to make CAAL's ESL work more readily accessible to general and ESL
audiences who may not have the time to wend their way through its
fairly dense full-length reports. This summary document is available
in PDF format from the CAAL website (www.caalusa.org, Publications
page, item ESL6). It may be purchased as a bound document directly
from CAAL ($10 prepaid plus postage, bheitner at caalusa.org for
instructions). The four main research reports summarized in this
Reference document are also available at the CAAL website, each for
$20 prepaid plus postage. They are: Adult ESL and the Community
College (2004, 59 pp.); Passing the Torch: Strategies for Innovation
in Community College ESL (2007, 153 pp.); Torchlights in ESL: Five
Community College Profiles (2007, 123 pp.); Pathways and Outcomes:
Tracking ESL Student Performance (2008, 212 pp.)--items ESL1 through
ESL5.
