New Theme Issues
Announcing Theme Issues in The Language Educator
The Learner * Technology * Instruction * Cultural Proficiency * Assessment and Feedback * Professional Development
Beginning in August 2013, The Language Educator began presenting a year of six themed issues. The articles submitted for these issues will be read by at least two expert reviewers, in addition to other TLE and ACTFL staff. We hope to include a variety of innovative and cutting-edge articles exploring each broad theme related to language education.
The remaining theme for these issues is:
April 2014—How can educators improve their effectiveness?
Focus on: PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Possible article topics include (but are not limited to):
- Teacher preparation and sustained improvement
- Teacher effectiveness
- Professional learning communities/communities of practice
- Continual improvement as an educator
Article submissions due: January 1, 2014
NOTE: Articles for these theme issues, while peer-reviewed, should still follow The Language Educator Author Guidelines and should be written in the style of a magazine feature article, with direct quotes from multiple primary sources and intended to appeal to educators of all languages at all levels.
