School Talk - Previous Revision

School Talk is a lively six-page newsletter designed specifically to help classroom teachers bridge the gap between the ideal and the real world of teaching. Presented in a friendly, informal voice, each issue focuses on one particular topic and deals in practical terms with questions that teachers everywhere are asking.

Regrettably, the July 2011 issue of School Talk will be the final issue. If your current subscription extends beyond that issue, NCTE staff will be in touch with options.

Editors: Andrea Garcia and Sandra Wilde

The theme for this year’s volume of School Talk is New Visions for Literacy Education. We plan to explore ideas that will provide new visions from a variety of perspectives, ideas that take critical policy issues into consideration but that also live on the ground with teachers and kids today. Joanne Yatvin leads off the October issue with a discussion of “the invisible pillars of literacy,” and then Jaime Kanter and Tracy Ferrar provide fresh takes on writing instruction and literacy assessments.
