Language Arts

Language Arts is the premiere journal for the teaching of language arts, focusing primarily on issues concerning children of preschool through middle school age. This peer-reviewed publication draws a diverse readership of teachers, researchers, teacher educators, policymakers, administrators, and all those with an interest in language, literacy, literature, and culture. We welcome the submission of high-quality contributions on language arts teaching and learning, broadly defined and enacted across a range of contexts.(Published September, November, January, March, May, and July)
