The David H. Russell award recognizes published research in language, literature, rhetoric, teaching procedures, or cognitive processes that may sharpen the teaching or the content of English at any level.
2009 Call For Nominations
The National Council of Teachers of English is now accepting nominations for the David H. Russell Award for Distinguished Research in the Teaching of English. Nominations of publications to be considered should be postmarked no later than March 1, 2009.
Any work or works of scholarship or research in language, literature, rhetoric, or pedagogy and learning published during the past five years (i.e., between January 2004 and December 2008) are eligible. Works nominated for the David H. Russell Award should be exemplary instances of the genre, address broad research questions, contain material that is accessibly reported, and reflect a project that stands the test of time. Normally, anthologies are not considered. Reports of doctoral studies, while not precluded from consideration for the Russell Award, are typically considered as part of NCTE's separate "Promising Researcher" program. Works nominated for the award must be available in the English language.
To nominate a study for consideration, please e-mail the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org (Your Name, Your Phone, Your e-mail, Author, Title, Publisher, Date of Publication, and one paragraph indicating your reasons for nominating the work), postmarked no later than March 1, 2009. Please include four copies of the publication for distribution to the Selection Committee, or give full bibliographic information so that the Selection Committee will encounter no difficulty in locating the publication you nominate.
