August 2016: Approaches to Social Justice in the ELA Classroom

Authors are required to read and reflect upon these beliefs and to address them in detail in their manuscripts. Share manuscripts of no more than 3,000 words as editable Google Docs and write cover letters as a direct email to email@example.com.

October 2016: Connected Reading
In Book Love: Developing Depth, Stamina, and Passion in Adolescent Readers, Penny Kittle asserts: “Once students are reading regularly, voraciously, we can lead them further. Once students develop a loyalty to books and authors, creating identities as readers, they will move toward challenge.” This issue of ELQ is dedicated to pursuing the big questions related to reading instruction. How do we connect with students, colleagues, school, and local communities to create a community of readers? How do we encourage readers to share their reading lives in practical and real-world contexts? What struggles do ELA educators face in establishing and maintaining reading communities? What role does technology play in the cultivation of reading lives? Share manuscripts as Google Docs and cover letters in direct email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
