Creating Networks to Support Women's Literacy December 1 - 12, 2008

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 our list: Creating networks to support women's literacy.

Discussion Preparation

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?
