"Torchlights in ESL: Five Community College Profiles" grows out of the Council for Advancement of Adult Literacy's (CAAL's) recent two-year study of adult ESL service in community colleges. The five college programs at the heart of the study offer high quality ESL instruction and are considered exemplary. This publication is a supplement to the report, "Passing the Torch: Strategies for Innovation in Community College ESL" (ED506584) and should be read in conjunction with that report. These profiles should be helpful to those who design and operate community college ESL programs as well as policy makers and funding agencies. For example, the profiles each contain a discussion of financing and levels of funding needed to provide high quality adult ESL services. Key researchers from the main project prepared the profiles presented here: (1) Bunker Hill Community College, MA (Elizabeth M. Zachry and Emily Dibble); (2) City College of San Francisco, CA (Sharon Seymour); (3) College of Lake County, IL (Suzanne Leibman); (4) Seminole Community College, FL (Sandy Ares and Beth Larson); and (5) Yakima Community College, WA (Pamela Ferguson). (Each paper contains tables, footnotes, and appendices.)
