Standing Committee on Research - Previous Revision


In order to identify and address issues of broad concern to NCTE members interested in advancing research in English language arts, the Standing Committee on Research is charged as follows:

  • to promote articulation across the various research groups within NCTE;
  • to serve as the primary research strand review group for annual convention programming;
  • to make ELA researchers aware of relatively under-researched areas and to encourage members of the Council to undertake studies in one or more of those areas;
  • to explore ways to increase support for literacy research by engaging various groups in collaborative projects and by creating materials to help the Council make the case for governmental support for literacy research programs;
  • to consider developing position statements and other publications helpful to teachers, administrators, and policymakers regarding research in English language arts;
  • to maintain a presence in AERA and pursue efforts to secure private grants and foundation funding for NCTE research initiatives.
