    Our hope is that this community will become a wealth of information shared.  Please use the Discussion Board above (and within each specific area)  to post lesson plans, images, and other items of interest.  From time to time we will move items that have been posted to the most appropriate areas of the site. In the Discussion Board above, the first few postings contain materials to help you learn how to create dynamic posts and attach materials to your posts. ELAS Events and Workshops will be a place for us to provide lists of specific events of interest to ELAS. ELAS Pedagogical Resources link in the left menu is an area where we will share information about materials available on the web and through other sources. ELAS Teaching Tips link in the left menu will be used to share tips and tricks that have been found useful, and possibly warnings of things that don't seem to work. ELAS Activities and Lesson Plans will eventually contain a variety of actual activities and lesson plans for your use. ELAS Leader Contacts provides you with a list of the original leaders of this site, including their affiliations and email addresses.
