Submit a Piece to the ISTE Literacy Network's Redesigned Professional Journal/Magazine Hybrid

Redesigned Professional Journal/Magazine Hybrid

 The Literacy Network hasn’t published its Journal, Literacy Special Interest for a while and we are anxious to get the next edition out.

LSI Issue #5 Winter 2016, LSI Issue #4 June 2015, LSI Issue #3 Spring 2015,  LSI Issue #2 May 2014,  LSI Issue #1 June 2013

We are anxious to receive articles, but would also like to expand the format to include shorter,  less formal items like the following (all of which would be a page to 2 pages in length). These still would list the author and include his or her professional profile. 

Moving forward, we now  intend to accept and publish:

- Full articles, as the journal has been publishing for the past few years (see past editions linked above in which you’ll find plenty of examples). However, those who would like to write and appear in the journal/magazine but who don’t want to do a full article may:

Review a book – Have you read or come across a book you feel connects particularly well with Literacy Instruction? One that others may have overlooked or been unaware of. Give a short summary and an explanation of its application to our field. If available, include a link to a page put up by the publisher or author or a video trailer.
-          Review a Resource - Have you found or used a resource that you feel Literacy Educators will want to know about and/or use in their work? Write a short summary and explain what the resource has to offer, its advantages, etc. Include a link so that colleagues can access it. EXAMPLE: http://literacyspecialinterest.blogspot.com/2017/01/resource-review-write-about-one-stop.html

Recommend an Article – Have you come across an article (one that can be accessed without a paid subscription) that you feel is of particular interest to Literacy Educators? Write a short introductory recommendation, excise some short passage to quote – ones you feel quickly deliver some of the important gist, offer an opinion about the veracity and applicability of what’s discussed in the article, and include a link. EXAMPLE:
-          Spot and Describe a Trend - An interesting content item to produce for our publication would address an early spotted trend. Such a piece might include a series (a minimum of 3) that all point to and establish a commonality around, a concept, or approach, or interest of interest in something for Literacy Educators.
If you are interested in submitting a piece please email literacyspecialinterest@gmail.com
