2008 Annual Reports
The National Council of Teachers of English—a professional association of educators in English Studies, literacy, and language arts—annually compiles reports from its volunteer leadership to chronicle the Council’s extensive activities.
The Annual Reports volume to the NCTE Board of Directors is a central document of record for NCTE activities for the year and includes written reports submitted by officers, editors, and leaders of NCTE’s many active subgroups. It provides a rich record of the Council’s work, carried out in line with NCTE’s constitutional mission:
to improve the quality of instruction in English at all educational levels; to encourage research, experimentation, and investigation in the teaching of English; to facilitate professional cooperation of the members; to hold public discussions and programs; to sponsor the publication of desirable articles and reports; and to integrate the efforts of all those who are concerned with the improvement of instruction in English.
In 2008, you may find included an update of work related to focal issues investigated through Strategic Governance by the NCTE Executive Committee: Teacher Quality, Adolescent Literacy, Assessment, Writing, Multimodal Literacy and Technology, Research and Teaching, English Language Learners, Professional Development, Closing the Achievement Gap, Reading Research, Meeting the Needs of Audiences Currently Unserved/Underserved by NCTE and 21st Century Literacies.
We invite your review of the Annual Reports to celebrate the work of colleagues, to identify gaps or potential needs, and to offer suggestions to Council leaders and headquarters staff as together we work to serve our mission. Please select the group from the menu below:
