These six theme issues of the "English Leadership Quarterly" represent those published during 1997 and part of 1998--volume 19 consists of the traditional four issues, while volume 20 consists of only two issues because of a change in publication schedule.

Kovach); "Department Meetings: The Creation of a Collaborative Culture" (Alyce Hunter); "A Student-Directed Performance Assessment" (Ronald T.
