NYS English Council Honored with 2017 NCTE Affiliate Journal of Excellence Award
The English Record, edited by Kjersti VanSlyke-Briggs of SUNY Oneonta and published by the New York State English Council, has been named as a recipient of the 2017 NCTE Affiliate Journal of Excellence 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 will be announced at the 2017 NCTE Annual Convention in St. Louis, during the Affiliate Roundtable Breakfast on Sunday, November 19.
Other winners include California English, edited by Carol Jago of the University of California, Los Angeles and published by the California Association of Teachers of English; New Jersey English Journal, edited by Liz deBeer of Brookdale Community College and Patricia Bender of Rutgers University and published by the New Jersey Council of Teachers of English; Ohio Journal of English Language Arts, edited by Patrick Thomas of University of Dayton and published by the Ohio Council of Teachers of English Language Arts; Oregon English Journal, edited by Ulrich Hardt of Portland State University and Kimberly Campbell of Lewis and Clark College and published by the Oregon Council of Teachers of English; Virginia English Journal, edited by Sean Ruday of Longwood University and published by the Virginia Association of Teachers of English; and Wisconsin English Journal edited by John Pruitt of University of Wisconsin Rock County and published by the Wisconsin Council of Teachers of English.
