Commission on Literature


The Commission on Literature is a deliberative and advisory body which each year identifies and reports to the NCTE Executive Committee:

  • on key issues in the teaching of literature
  • reviews what the Council has done concerning literature during the year
  • recommends new projects and persons who might undertake them

The Commission:

  • monitors current and projected NCTE publications (other than journals)
  • suggests topics for future NCTE publications on literature
  • performs a similar role of review and recommendation for the NCTE Annual Convention program

Occasionally, the Commission undertakes further tasks and projects as approved by the NCTE Executive Committee.
