These two volumes of a newsletter on English as A Second Language (ESL) literacy education provide articles on: "Health Literacy: Recognizing its Importance in ESL Instruction" (Kate Singleton) and "English That Works" (Brigitte Marshall). Both volumes offer interviews (one with an ESL teacher and one with an author who write about ESL issues). They also include news notes on such topics as English Literacy/Civics Education projects, 60 countries attending the 19th World Congress on Reading, and the soaring U.S. Hispanic Population. A resources update section describes new books, booklets, and Web sites related to ESL instruction. Each journal offers a book review. The two books are "In Cuba I Was a German Shepherd" (Ana Menendez) and "Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting by in America" (Barbara Ehenreich). (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education.)
