This Yearbook begins with the article representing Ellen Jampole's presentation to the CRA membership. In her presidential address, Ellen had the audience alternately laughing, considering, and reminiscing about how she and other academics understand and develop the knowledge they carry. She shares these same themes in her narrative, "Traditions, Storying, and Crossroads" that follows the conference theme and introduces the "Issues in Changing Times" that organizes this edition. The papers comprising this Yearbook that follow Jampole's presidential address are: (1) Getting the Facts Right in Books for Young Readers: Researching "Mailing May" (Michael Tunnel); (2) Teachers of English Learners: Issues of Preparation and Professional Development (MaryEllen Vogt); (3) Teacher Knowledge and Teaching Reading (Mia Callahan, Vicki B.
