English in Texas Journal Wins Big
English in Texas, co-edited by C&I faculty Jane Saunders, Gwynne Ash, Lori Assaf, Carol Delaney and Valerie Taylor, published by the Texas Council of Teachers of English, has been named winner of the 2016 NCTE Affiliate Journal Award, given by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).
This award, established in 1995, honors outstanding affiliate journals and their editors who demonstrate excellence in these publications.
The winning affiliate journal must be a magazine-type publication—print or online—and provide members with scholarly articles on issues and topics related to English language arts teaching. The journals are judged on content, organization, layout, and physical appearance. The variety of articles published are judged on quality of writing, evidence of research and scholarly exploration, appeal to many different groups within the affiliate, coverage of important issues in English language arts education, and inclusion of other types of writing (e.g., poetry, affiliate news, book reviews). The award winners were announced at the 2016 NCTE Annual Convention in Atlanta, during the Affiliate Roundtable Breakfast on Sunday, November 20.
