Robert, did this come through OK? I took a Word file and saved it as plain text. If that's not a good procedure, please let me know.

Hi Margaret, that's a good way to take out formatting. Do you use Blackboard? You can do the same thing by clicking on the <> html mode before you paste from Word. It automatically removes the html tags. Anyway, would you like to try to edit the actual wiki page? I'll copy Dana Ferris and Eli Hinkel references, and you see if you can do the same for Swan and Smith and Omniglot. You should be able to edit this page by signing in with your e-mail and password.

Editing mission accomplished (see above)! Also, thanks for the Blackboard reminder. I just copied text from a Word file to a new page on BB that way. Now the students can copy the unformatted text back to a blank Word doc to practice MLA formatting tomorrow morning. They will have a reference handout of the same paragraph correctly formatted. I can already hear the gnashing of teeth....

Yes, I can imagine. Your comment brings to mind the role of Information Literacy in ESL classes. Here is an excellent resource on this: http://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/standards/informationliteracycompetency.cfm I was copied on a document from the university library today on the information literacy standards being adopted in the redit classes being offered. The English Language Institute offers non-credit classes, but I would certainly see our ELI beginning to adopt these standards as part of the curriculum. Personally, I see the issue of being able to make sense of all of the information available on the Internet today as one of the greatest challenges for students and instructors alike.

TRAINING!!! Listen to Gavin Dudeney. We're all on the right track then. And hear what he says about the kind of training we need and how we can benefit. Music to my ears!

"...Contact with other people, bouncing of ideas, different perspectives..." This IS music to my ears! Thanks Maizie for sharing this wonderful video.
