Title of project:Soil and Water Conservation: An Annotated Bibliography Roles I’m looking to fill:
Authors of annotations
People to identify online resources for some sections of the textbooks
People to identify photos that are openly licensed or in the public domain that can be added to the textbook
What makes this project unique? The project uses an annotated bibliography format to allow the use of freely-available, but not openly shared materials online, such as copyrighted university extension bulletins. It is also designed to help train students to seek out credible sources, as opposed to relying solely on a textbook or trusting the first link they find online.

Thanks! I think the CFP is fine as is. We may already have one peer reviewer (@beau.branson is following up to confirm) but it doesn’t hurt to keep the word “two” in there for now, until we hear otherwise.
the title and subject of your project: It’s All Greek to Me! Using Authentic Readings to Improve Knowledge of the English Language and Western Culture–advanced ESL, pre-University ESL, covering all 4 aspects if needed (reading, writing, listening, speaking), using Greek mythology and relevant articles.
the role you are looking to fill: Proofreaders for the stories, examining for story inconsistencies or any areas where stories could be better developed for reading ease by deleting confusing, unnecessary parts. Checking questions to make sure they are worded properly. Knowledge of CEFR levels, academic word lists, and corpi (corpuses???) would be great.
one sentence about what makes your project unique: This textbook combines literature and academic articles, using stories from Greek myths to explain vocabulary and idioms used in English that come from the stories.
