From the text: “TORCHLIGHTS IN ESL: Five Community College Profiles” grows out of CAAL’s recent two-year study of adult ESL service in community colleges. (See “PASSING THE TORCH: Strategies for Innovation in Community College ESL,” As indicated in the Foreword to the earlier report, the five college programs at the heart of the study “offer high quality ESL instruction and are considered exemplary” – according to standards and criteria developed by the project and as judged by dozens of people across the country who nominated the programs for inclusion in the study. CAAL promised in PASSING THE TORCH that it would publish detailed profiles of the programs. TORCHLIGHTS makes good on that promise.
