From the Current Issue:

Responsibility, Creativity, and the Arts of Language

Doug Hesse

Watch as Doug Hesse, president-elect of NCTE and program chair for next week's Annual Convention in Minneapolis, talks about the theme he chose for the Convention.


"Educators have always been very much involved with some basic practical literacy needs of the students in our country," Doug says. "We teach reading, we teach writing. These are the foundational skills for future schooling, also for jobs." People do a lot of advocating in their own lives, too, Doug continues. "Anytime you get a statement from your bank that's wrong and you need to correct it, you need literacy skills." And if there is something under deliberation in your church, in your school, how do you understand the issue and how do you influence it? "How do we help people get the resources they need? How do we help them develop the skills they need to improve their own lives and the lives of others?" Doug asks.
