KANSAS EDUCATIONAL LIBRARY
The Kansas Educational Library was established by Debbie Davis, the 1987 Kansas State Educational Director. The purpose of the Library is to preserve and share educational programs. Any chapter may contribute and use the library.
The programs contained in the library are available at no cost to any chapter desiring to use them. The chapter using the program need to update the materials in order that current information is given. These updates would be most welcome so please send them to the webmaster for posting.
Any chapter may submit programs to the Library. The programs must be well written, typed and should contain a bibliography. The report should not be written on the report form!! Please include the NAME OF THE PERSON who wrote the program or NAME OF PERSON contributing the program, CHAPTER NAME, and TOWN on the program; this way each chapter will be given due credit. It is hoped that the Library will grow and be used by all chapters.
The following is a list of programs currently available:
"In ancient days, when students from many lands first sat at the feet of philosophers, they were able to meet on a common ground by speaking the classic language of learning - "Greek". It is fitting therefore that we should have chosen the Greek alphabet and our three watch words from the Greek language. Epsilon Sigma Alpha, translated freely, means "Pursuit of Learning."
"Our members often say the letters ESA stand for Education, Service, and Association. Each member is encouraged to participate in a balanced program of activities focusing on all three aspects of the Epsilon Sigma Alpha experience. Most chapters work to develop a common program for the year; however, members who do not belong to a chapter can also participate by using web site resources, leadership training sessions and state, multi-state and International Council events."
