—Hello, CATESOL News readers.
Happy New Year! I hope this issue finds you well. It is even more jam-packed than usual, with news and photos from CATESOL’s big event of the year, the annual conference, held in November in San Diego. CATESOL’s new president, Karen Russikoff, offers her reflections on the event, “Embracing the Past—Planning the Future,” as does Glorious Fealing, an attendee who shares her gratitude for what she brought home from it. If you weren’t able to go to the conference, be sure to check out the virtual photo albums from CATESOL 2016 in the “On the Bookshelf: section.
In this issue you’ll also find a preview of TESOL’s 2017 international conference in Seattle, wrap-ups of chapter events, news about a number of CATESOL-supported bills now signed into law, a story about one international student’s experience learning English, the benefits of and tips for fostering multilingualism, a whole collection of opinion pieces, and a lineup of lessons for the classroom: one on using embodied cognition concepts in poetry read-a-thons, an invitation to participate in the 300Gardens project, which benefits language learners and botanical gardens worldwide, and one on using digital games to teach ESL.
