Special Symposium Commemorating the NCTE/CCCC Relationship
College Composition and Communication, v62 n3 p504-539 Feb 2011
2011 marks the Centennial of the National Council of Teachers of English, and to commemorate this milestone, CCC will publish two Symposia, one in this issue of the journal, and a second in June. Here we learn from Erika Lindemann about the founding of both NCTE and CCCC; about how both groups have developed; and, drawing from these histories, about how we might move into the next hundred years. From Keith Gilyard, who authors the second Symposium article, we learn about how activism has been at the heart of both organizations; about how language activism in particular has separated NCTE and CCCC--and brought us together; and about how current concerns can evoke a shared agenda as we move forward into NCTE's second century. (Contains 18 notes.)
