Getting It Together: Notes toward a Shared Future for NCTE and CCCC
Gilyard, Keith
College Composition and Communication, v62 n3 p539-549 Feb 2011
In this article, the author shares his notes toward a shared future for National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC). He discusses how activism has been at the heart of both organizations, how language activism in particular has separated NCTE and CCCC--and brought them together, and how current concerns can evoke a shared agenda as one moves forward into NCTE's second century. He stresses that as the centennial celebration approaches, NCTE and CCCC would do well to renew their common commitment to egalitarian impulses and the pursuit of high-quality language arts education for the masses, which is a literacy puzzle the nation has never solved.
