Spread the word: The 2015 edition of Educator's Voice
, NYSUT's academic journal, has gone digital.
The theme for this year's edition is "Critical Thinking and Problem-Solving for 21st Century Learners." The issue showcases eight different classrooms teaching critical thinking through inquiry and expedition, poetry and music. Authors offer ways to make teaching and learning authentic, collaborative and hands-on.
While Educator's Voice is no longer offered in print, NYSUT Vice President Catalina Fortino said the online edition includes many extras, including 3–4 minute videos with featured authors. Also new this year, the online publication offers readers the ability to comment on articles, ask questions or describe how ideas were adapted in the classroom.
"We are expanding our online features to make the journal a more interactive and accessible experience for readers," Fortino said. "Our goal is to make Educator's Voice a true 21st century member-to-member experience."
Go to www.nysut.org/edvoice to read the edition online or download the PDFs to your computer or mobile devices.
The call for proposals for next year's edition, "English Language Learners: A Mosaic of Languages and Cultures," is also online.
Over the past decade, the state's ELL enrollment has grown by more than 20 percent. This edition of Educator's Voice will showcase how educators teach and support English language learners in different models of instruction. The deadline for proposals is June 12.
