The James R. Squire Office of Policy Research compiles research and policy for policy makers and teachers on behalf of NCTE. Primarily in policy research briefs that accompany NCTE's Council Chronicle and this online space, the Squire Office relates the latest in policy and research on pertinent issues.
The Squire Office is led by Anne Gere and comprised of a team of graduate students in the Joint PhD Program in English and Education (JPEE) at the University of Michigan. They can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NCTE Policy Briefs
The Squire Office has published several printed Policy Briefs which incorporate a wide-ranging amount of research findings grouped around topics of interest in contemporary educational concerns. These 3-4 page briefs offer issue overviews, debunk common myths and misunderstandings, summarize current research findings, and offer recommended strategies for teachers in each area. Topics include Adolescent Literacy, 21st Century Literacies, Writing Now, and English Language Learners. Click here to view a listing of the Policy Briefs in downloadable PDF format.
