**************************************************

I am very excited to announce that from Monday Dec. 1- Friday December 12,
Dr. Mev Miller will be facilitating the following guest discussion on the
Diversity and Literacy list: Creating networks to support women's literacy.

Mev Miller, Ed.D is an educator and consultant on issues of women and
literacy. She is the founder and Director of WE LEARN (Women Expanding -
Literacy, Education, Action, Resource, Network)
http://www.litwomen.org/welearn.html
WE LEARN also sponsors: Women Leading Through Reading
http://www.litwomen.org/wltr.html and Women's Perspectives
http://www.litwomen.org/perspectives.html

The focus of this discussion will be on further developing a women and
literacy hub/clearinghouse for the nation. The specific focus of this
discussion will be on how can local and regional efforts gain visibility
and support through such a network/clearinghouse?

In preparation for this discussion, please start thinking about the
following:

1) What are individuals and programs doing locally to address women's
literacy issues? For this discussion, locally means in your classroom,
program, neighborhood, community, city, state. What you are doing might be a
curriculum, a specific type of program, or any kind of organizing....and
more.

2) What do you need to support the work you are doing?

3) Would you find regional (state or area of country) events or conferences
useful? Be specific - how and what would you need or desire? How might a
national organization facilitate regional supports?

4) How can a national clearinghouse of information specifically focused on
women's literacy issues, curriculum, and research support your work? What
do you need it to do?

Please join us for this discussion (from 12/1-12/12). To subscribe to the
