NCTE Appointed Council Groups - Previous Revision

Commissions are essentially deliberative and advisory bodies that deal with defined branches of study within the English language arts (composition, language, literature, media, and reading).


Standing Committees focus on particular issues or continuing areas of substantial concern whose effects cross all branches of study in English instruction (censorship, research, international concerns).


Committees are appointed by the NCTE Executive Committee to study issues, develop publications, make proposals, or carry on activities related to one or more levels of instruction (writing, racism, poetry for children, reading).
