Who were Ada Lovelace, Frances Kelsey, and Maria Mitchell?

Women’s History Month is commemorated in March.  Here is an idea for an early start: integrate research, reading and writing skills with investigations of women in science.  Many people recognize the name of Marie Curie and (perhaps) Rachel Carson.  How about some of these other women, among whom are a pioneer in computer science, the physician who prevented the approval of thalidomide usage in the United States, a pioneering code-breaker during World War II, the person who established the field of industrial engineering, and many Nobel Prize laureates.

Contextualized ESL/ESOL classes for immigrant professionals

I am creating a list of ESL/ESOL programs that provide contextualized classes designed for specific professions (i.e., classes that teach professional medical terminology as opposed to just teaching English).

Does anyone know of programs that offer these services? I'm looking specifically for programs that teach English terminology for the following professions (but welcome suggestions outside of these fields as well): Dentistry, Engineering and Pharmacology.
