Writing and Working for Change: A Digital Archive of Social Activism by Teachers of NCTE/CCCC is a project co-directed by Samantha Blackmon, Cristina Kirklighter, and Steve Parks that responds to the need to both preserve and expand access to records documenting the collective work of English teachers as a way of supporting NCTE’s commitment to social justice and equality.

In conjunction with efforts to chronicle historical moments for NCTE’s Centennial Celebration, this project specifically celebrates the collective work of teachers within and across diverse identities to ensure the field recognize and respect the language, educational, political, and social rights of all students and teachers.

This past summer a digital archive was set up to document the work of NCTE/CCCC caucuses, committees, and task forces that have advocated within and outside of the profession to achieve these goals. Many of these groups are using this digital archive to interview their respective founders and write up their groups’ histories. Contact persons from various groups are asking NCTE members to help them in their search for archival material (see box above).
