English Practice Call for articles:
In line with the BCTELA 2016 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, as well as, book reviews for our upcoming issue.
Entitled Empowering Learners; Renewing our Practice this broadly-themed issue opens a space for exploration and conversation around all that brings a sense of empowerment, vitality, agency and deeper purpose to the learning and teaching of English Language Arts.
Questions to consider might include:
What does empowerment mean and look like for students? What role does language, literacy and/or literature have in student empowerment? How do I nurture a sense agency in my students? How might I use texts and/or literature to help students understand themes of power and agency? How do I maintain vitality and feel empowered as a teacher?
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)
- Check this Out (book reviews)
Deadline: March 15th, 2017. Anticipated publication Summer 2017.
Editors: Sara Florence Davidson and Ashley Cail
