  2. Hello Sheila,
    I have been trying to leave a comment on the January 5, 2021 blog post on The Power of Listening and it keeps saying, “My post is waiting moderation.” What does that mean? I posted the comment twice by mistake thinking it didn’t work!
    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    1. Sorry Kathryn, the blog was down for a bit and the comments weren’t able to be approved as fast as usual. Your comment on the blog is up now.

  4. Someone let me know about this blog and I’d like to sign up, however, I am unable to do so with my email. When I go to the sign up through email, it makes me sign in through my Google account, which I have through my institution, but my email is a separate address because we use Outlook for email. So after it tries to log me in, it says I don’t have access to the service. Can you please help me sign up with my email address to get these updates?

  5. I like getting and reading the AEA 365 entries. However, at least once a month I am struck by the use of 80’s slang and how many people probably don’t understand it. “Rad” is short for “radical” which was slang in the 1980’s for “cool” or even something better than cool as “radical” also meant exciting. The formal definition of radical doesn’t fit AEA’s usage and neither of the slang terms “rad” or “radical” is widely used by people today. Can I suggest dropping the “Rad” and using “Select Resources”?

  6. I am new to the entire idea of program evaluation, but am doing a rather in-depth study of the field in a course through Concordia University. This is only Week Two of the class, and although I feel that I have learned a great deal, I also feel that I have many miles to travel on this great educational path. This week’s topic is Outcomes and Measurable Indicators. I am planning a special program for ESOL students which fall under the school’s overall ESOL program. I would like to post the outcomes that I would potentially like to use and let you of you professionals see if I am heading in the right direction or if I need to make significant alterations.

    I just found your site tonight and plan to share it with my class. I hope that is acceptable as I am extremely excited about this resource!

    Here are the possible Outcomes that I am considering for the program:

    The first of the criterion which will be imperative to the structure of this section is outcomes. As Rossi, Lipsey, and Freeman (2004) explain, evaluations all involve one particularly important activity and that absolutely requires “assessing the outcomes of programs” (p. 7). The stakeholders and all program participants were invited to a gathering to help determine what possible changes may need to be made in order to fully meet the needs of The Excelerator’s program. By the end of the session, the following were decided upon as desired outcomes:
    1. Acceleration of English language acquisition and ability to use it in conversation
    2. Determination of how students can access the new language more quickly and efficiently
    3. Increased communication between ELLs and their peers and teachers
    4. Ameliorated exchanges between home and school
    5. Expanded participation in extracurricular school activities

    I promise I am open to constructive criticism and would just appreciate any feedback.

    Thanks so much and have a great night!

      Hello Beth! Glad you found the blog, and please do share with your classmates and colleagues. Best wishes on your project!

  7. Hi,
    I love this blog and want to post it on my Pinterest. Is there any way that the header can be uploaded as an image so that I can pin that instead of an image from a contributor’s post?
    Thanks for curating such an awesome resource!

    1. Thanks for your kind words Jean! So glad you enjoy the blog. We do encourage authors to include images when they can especially for those using Pinterest. Unfortunately, I can’t change the header at this time. If there is a particular post you want to pin that has no image, feel free to contact me and I will contact the author to ask if he or she would be willing to contribute one. We can always add an image to a post after it is published on the site.
