"What's the Buzz?" Pennsylvania's Adult Basic and Literacy Education Dissemination Newsletter Project. Final Report.
What's the Buzz?, v13 n1-10 1993-1994
A project produced and disseminated to adult basic and literacy education practitioners in Pennsylvania a newsletter containing relevant information designed to meet their professional development and awareness needs. It prepared and disseminated an 8-12 page newsletter for the months September 1993 through June 1994. Information contained in the newsletter came from a variety of sources including: conferences, workshops, regional staff development centers, state government offices, other professional newsletters, adult education clearinghouses and professional publications, Pennsylvania Adult Literacy Resource Centers, national professional adult education and literacy clearinghouses, national professional organizations and individuals, and U.S. government offices. The newsletter was mailed to 3,000-3,500 adult education practitioners each month. On the basis of responses from readers and an analysis of the content and format of the newsletters, project staff recommended an expansion to 12 pages each month and changes to enhance its readability and attractiveness. (Ten issues of "What's the Buzz?" are attached. Articles are on these topics: state adult literacy resource centers, regional staff development centers, Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) Bureau information and personnel, Pennsylvania ABLE programs and practitioners, Pennsylvania adult students, professional development, grant information, conferences and workshops, professional organizations and coalitions, and publications.)
