Hello everyone. My name is Charity Davenport. I am an instructor at the English Language Institute at the University of Tennessee. I am also currently pursuing another Master’s, this time in Instructional Technology. I have been working on what started as a course packet of readings that involve learning English through Greek mythology. It is geared toward adult ESL learners, pre-University, advanced English. Over the years I have slowly been using more open resources to build the course packet, and recently converted about 99% of it to “open” in order to meet the requirements to receive a grant, which I did receive. I will need someone in my department to use the textbook in the Fall semester.
I recently piloted a few chapters this term and found a lot of things I needed to revise. How would I go about having others revise or give me feedback about my textbook here?
My open textbooks can be accessed here: https://iagtm.pressbooks.com/
When…or if I can ever actually finish this once and for all, I would also like to publish my ESL adapted version of “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” and start working on a textbook of readings about famous people in different fields around the world.
