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. Articles in volume 19 number 1 deal with theories, issues, and personal accounts on the individual, group, situational, and ethical dimensions of leadership, and are: "Leadership and the Time Warp of Rapid Change" (Barbara E. Kovach); "Department Meetings: The Creation of a Collaborative Culture" (Alyce Hunter); "A Student-Directed Performance Assessment" (Ronald T. Sion); and "Snowboarding" (a humorous story gleaned from Rick Chambers' plane ride home from a scholarly conference). Articles in volume 19 number 2 address linking teachers, schools, and communities and are: "Integrating Service Learning into the Composition Curriculum" (Ann Watters and Marjorie Ford); "Linguistic Diversity in the Peer Response Group (Patricia B. Wachholz); "Developing Integrated Language Arts Standards, K-12" (Regina G. Chatel); and "Cultivating a Climate for Literacy" (Ruth Townsend).

McNabb, Gilbert Valdez, Claudette Rasmussen, and Jeri Nowakowski); "Of Paradox and Partnership" (Janet M. Beyersdorfer); "Getting the Most from Email: High School and College Students Respond to Literature" (Helen Dale and Carla Traun); and "Toward an Appropriate Technology in Education" (Ronald T.
