Check out the latest issue of The Change Agent - Celebrations
As we celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Change Agent, we turn our attention to—what else—celebrations! In this issue, students write about everything from private rituals to family- and community-based holidays, parties, graduations, commemorations, feasts, and fêtes. A special treat for this issue is the gorgeous cover art “Juneteenth on Oak Bluffs” and “Jubilee” on the back cover, both by Sonia Lynn Sadler.
The Network for Integrating New Americans project is an OCTAE-funded initiative to support multi-stakeholder networks that focus on the civic, linguistic, and economic integration of immigrants. We are sharing the technical assistance webinars we develop for that project, as we think that the topics – employer engagement, strategies to support ELL access to education and training, etc. – may be of interest to you.

New England Technology Integration Project (TIP)
TIP is a professional development offering focused on building the capacity to purposefully and effectively incorporate technology into instruction. This project runs from late October 2014 through May 2015 and features a facilitated online course, coaching to develop technology-supported lessons/units that address CCR standards, collaboration and peer observation, and practice using technology to share and present work. Participants do not need to be highly experienced with technology, but need to be able to benefit from participation (they need to be able to learn online).
