More from Louann Reid: CEE has reliable researchers and educators who can mobilize to tell the true stories of effective English teacher education. And I believe we must do so.
We can, we are, and we have more to do. Here are just a few examples:
- We’ve established a joint task force with IRA to identify characteristics of effective literacy education.
- CEE annually distributes funding for research projects that will advance the mission of the organization as articulated through our various position statements and sponsored publications.
- CEE members are active bloggers and writers of commentary on issues related to teacher education -- for example, Peter Smagorinsky, Paul Thomas, Michael Moore, and Teachers, Profs, Parents: Writers Who Care.
