>Subject: [ELCIVICS] EL Civics Listserv Address and Reports


>Hi everyone,


>We now have the new EL Civics listserv address! To post listings to

>the EL Civics listserv, do not use the old address. Instead, type the

>following address in the address line and then press send as you

>normally would: ELCIVICS@listsmart.osl.state.or.us


>Nothing has changed for you, the user, accept the address. However, if

>you do notice any problems please email me at kierstag@earthlink.net.

>Also, although we are still working out the details of the listserv

>maintenance, please continue to email any changes and additions or

>deletions of listserv names, to me at kierstag@earthlink.net.


>I am also including below, the EL Civics listserv report format that

>Kristen Kulongoski originally sent to the listserv in October, 2003.

>Kristen has confirmed that the frequency of reporting, and the format,

>are the same:


>"The listserv will continue to serve multiple purposes, including:

>- a reporting mechanism,

>- a source of helpful information for the classroom instructor and/or

>program coordinator, and

>- a communication tool.


>Frequency of reporting:

>- Guideline: each program will report two times per month

>- Requirement: each program will report a minimum of 9 times per year

>(according to completion of units)


>Format for reporting:

>- subject line will first reference specific curriculum used (i.e.,

>"CC..." for Crossroads Cafe; "OCG..." for On Common Ground)


>- Name, personal email, college, class and level, theme and episode,

>short narrative, student response to class/unit, CASAS competencies or

>INS questions addressed, resources used, and handouts or supplementary

>materials used."


>Again, please email me at kierstag@earthlink.net, if you have any

>questions or comments.


>Thanks and many best wishes for a happy holiday season!
