The Affiliate Journal Awards will be among awards presented by the NCTE Standing Committee on Affiliates during the Affiliate Breakfast on November 22, 2015. This event is part of the NCTE Annual Convention being held November 18-22, 2015 in Minneapolis, Minnesota avis viagra ligne.

Twelve entries were received this year. Entries for the award were journals published during the year from May 2014 through the program deadline of May 1, 2015.

This program, established in 1995, recognizes affiliate journals that provide their members with scholarly articles on issues and topics related to the teaching of the English language arts. The entries are judged on content, organization, layout, and physical appearance as well as variety of articles published, quality of writing, evidence of research and scholarly exploration, appeal to many different groups within the affiliate, coverage of important issues in English language arts education, inclusion of other types of writing (poetry, affiliate news, book reviews, etc.), a readable and attractive design, appropriate cover art, clean typography for body copy and headlines, presence of basics of magazine publishing (folios, general information on publisher, date, cover, table of contents, etc.), use of graphic elements to aid readability, and quality of paper on which the journal is printed.

The National Council of Teachers of English, with more than 35,000 individual and institutional members worldwide, is dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of English and the language arts at all levels of education.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to join the BCTELA summer book club, don’t worry: you still can! The coordinated date has been extended to July 6th.
This year we are reading about theories of Place-Based education. As this topic is still emerging as a area of study, we will be reading four articles rather than a single text.
Let us know if you have questions. If you’re ready to read, please download the form and send it to the address you’ll find at the bottom. We will send you the articles. The first two will be discussed on Twitter on July 9th, and the second two on August 11th (see the Important Dates in the sidebar to the left).
