The work of the commission is grounded in the belief that it is impossible to make sense of the field of English language arts without using gender, race, and class as central categories of description and analysis.  The challenge before the Commission is to develop and uncover models of teaching that are flexible enough to capture and reflect the ways these elements function together; to determine how teachers in English language arts see themselves and others; and to delineate the opportunities for transformation, constructive growth, and change in their profession.

Current and Proposed Projects:

  1. We developed an NCLE Inquiry Group as a result of our working strand in Fort Collins in July 2013.  Our main agenda item for the fall 2013 meeting is determining how to use and make accessible this site.
