Hi Mel,
We are in the process of doing something better and farther-reaching than
including adult ed teachers in AMF.  We're creating workshops on the web.
We'll be developing a prototype course this fall on searching.  We'll test
it this spring.  If all goes well, we'll be putting more on the web.

So few teachers can come to DC with the AMF program, and there are so many
needs.  Getting our training materials into the hands of Fellows, district
training folks, and just anyone who wants to enroll is going to help us
reach a wider audience.

I'd be happy to help you pull together resources for what you plan to
teach.  We don't think of ourselves as being limited to the K-12 audience.
It's been our starting point, true, but as you say yourself, there are so
many wonderful things here for many audiences.  It will just take people
like you to see the possibilities and help us reach those audiences.

Here's to a great school year,
