Almeda, Cheryl H. – English Journal, 2012
Charlie was a target for bullying in the high school where the author taught. At 15, kids had not grown out of the need to pick on Charlie for his high-pitched voice, his overweight stature, and his uncontrollable and exuberant laugh. What really targeted Charlie for the bullying, however, was his seemingly childlike fascination with drawing comic…

Edmondson, Jacqueline – English Journal, 2012
In contemporary contexts, young people are accustomed to life story; indeed, their lives are saturated with constructions of their stories and those of others, whether created by themselves or their "friends" on social networks. Multimedia outlets convey often detailed stories of more-famous others, whether celebrities or those experiencing…

In this article, the authors look at James Moffett's influence on "English Journal". With the 1968 publication of his companion volumes--"Teaching the Universe of Discourse," which provided the theoretical underpinnings of his practice-oriented, and "A Student-Centered Language Arts Curriculum"--James Moffett (1929-96) became a major influence on…

Thomas, P. L. – English Journal, 2012
Literary criticism in the form of the so-called book report, may, therefore, wrote Stephen Bloore in 1934, "be a most valuable aid to independent thought if it is not used merely to check up on the books supposedly read by a student". For a century, "English Journal" has been a map and a narrative of the discourse about teaching ELA as well as the…

Greene, Katie; Albers, Peggy – English Journal, 2012
The past 100 years of "English Journal" have positioned students and teachers in a variety of ways. As the authors embarked on exploring issues in the constructions of students in "EJ", they found that some concerns that teachers raised about English and English education resonated in their own classrooms and experiences as students and teachers.…

Gulla, Amanda N. – English Journal, 2012
For many teachers of middle school and high school, the greatest challenge they face in trying to help struggling readers improve their skills can be students' self-perception. When young people do not see themselves as members of the "literacy club," it is not just a simple matter of persuading them that becoming a fluent reader is…

Newhouse, Kelley R.; Propper, Michele L.; Riedel, Ruth M.; Teitelzweig, Barbara S. – English Journal, 2012
An oxymoron is a simple contradiction, a juxtaposition of two inharmonious terms, such as "fiend angelical" in Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet." At first glance, literature and professional writing seem to be polar opposites; however, when one views them together, one can see unique, often interesting possibilities that add…

Dulaney, Margaret A. – English Journal, 2012
After teaching in rural North Carolina for about six years, the author was on the verge of giving up on teaching Shakespeare to her students.

Bomer, Randy – English Journal, 2011
No moment of teaching is an island, entire of itself. Every move the author makes, every decision to speak or keep silent, every utterance emerges out of a larger ongoing professional conversation, as unfinished now as it was a hundred years ago when that first "English Journal" ("EJ") appeared. His specific moves as a teacher are turns at talk in…

Kist, William – English Journal, 2011
The debate over the place of new literacies extends throughout the history of English teaching and the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).
