In addition to the books and resources presented in other areas of this website, we also present additional tools to support women-centered literacy programming. In this section, we present recent articles, bibliogrpahies focused on specific themes, connections to recent academic research, and web-based presentations.
This page features articles from some of our past newsletters as well as contributions from our members.
Over the years we have been able to gather listings of teachng and learning materials based around specific themes. Some of these bibliographies have appeared in our newsletter while other have been compiled for conferences or other presentations. We hope you find them useful tools.
WE LEARN develops publications based on our work and projects. Many of our members participate in creating these works. The types of material include:
- Student writing publications
- Training and curriculum manuals
- Collections of essays
These materials support reflection, instruction, and research. You can find specific titles mentioned throughout the project pages on this website. To order these materials, please visit the "Purchase Materials" section of our website.
