Bullet point. Red arrow pointing to the right. Listservs [] (a.k.a. email discussion groups, or "mailrings") tend to be more focused and professional than online discussions. Participation in listservs is most often limited to subscribers; subscriptions are almost always free. Limiting participation to subscribers helps ensure that those involved in the conversation are more committed to the process, that the conversation will stay on-topic, and that most of the comments will be informed and thoughtful. Our list of listservs [] provides a fast way to locate listservs that may of interest to you.

Bullet point. Red arrow pointing to the right. SIGs [] (Special Interest Groups) provide a means for teachers to take a more formal role in formulating and guiding policy and practice. Our list of SIGs focuses on groups which are involved in reading comprehension.

These pages are the "community centers" where teachers and researchers can come to network, share insights and viewpoints, and work together on matters related to a specific research project.
