Honouring Students as Creators, Thinkers, & Communicators
In line with the BCTELA 2020 conference theme, English Practice invites you to submit teaching ideas, classroom inquiries and practice-focused research, reflective and critical narratives, poems, fiction and other arts-based renderings, or book reviews for our upcoming issue.
Entitled Honouring Students as Creators, Thinkers, & Communicators, this issue opens a space for exploration and conversation around how we can help students discover who they are as creators, thinkers and communicators in teaching English Language Arts.
Guiding questions may include:
What does being a creator, thinker and communicator mean to students?
How can we encourage students to show their thinking and learning in creative ways?
How can we teach students to be mindful communicators?
What kinds of perspectives are important to bring into our English Language Arts classrooms when fostering a safe space for students to discover their identity?
How do we support our students to find their voices?
We have four sections to assist you in preparing and submitting your writing:
Teaching Ideas (classroom lessons and strategies)
Investigating our Practice (teacher inquiry)
Salon (literary & arts-based pieces)

Deadline: April 15th, 2021. Anticipated publication Fall 2021.
