Call for papers

California English is the official magazine of CATE, California Association of Teachers of English

CATE (California Association of Teachers of English) is a non profit organization promoting communication, cooperation, and educational knowledge among all responsible for teaching English and the language arts. All California English Teachers are encouraged to join.

Here is the call for manuscripts for their themed June 2004 issue : Leaving No Child Behind
(deadline April 15).

No Child Left Behind legislation is designed to insure that all children are provided with the help they need to succeed in school and ultimately in life. How is your school supporting students who are in danger of falling behind? What kinds of intervention programs or classroom support structures seem to be working? How have you identified students in need of targeted assistance without stigmatizing them? How have teachers at your school acquired the skills they need to teach in literacy intervention programs? Are there particular materials that seem to be making a difference for your students? California English would like to feature stories from preschool initiatives to AVID to college bridge programs. Letís share our expertise so that neither California children nor California teachers will be left behind.

Please send all submissions to California English editor, Carol Jago. Articles should be limited to 2,500 words. If possible please submit manuscripts via email to jago@gseis.ucla.edu. If this is not possible, send 3 copies and a SASE to 15332 Antioch Street #539, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272.

Is this called being part of the problem, or what? Maybe California teachers need a revolutionary alternative.
