ELATE Graduate Strand - NCTE

ELATE Graduate Student Research Award

English Language Arts Teacher Educators (ELATE) is pleased to announce the establishment of the ELATE Graduate Student Research Award. This award seeks to support graduate student research that advances the work of ELATE as articulated through the organization’s position statements and sponsored publications. The proposal deadline is August 8.

Involvement at Professional Conferences

The ELATE-GS is actively involved at professional conferences, both in the form of facilitating formal sessions that address issues related to graduate studies in English education and offering social activities specifically for graduate students.

ELATE-GS-organized sessions have been presented at the National Council of Teachers of English Annual Convention and the English Language Arts Teacher Educators Biennial Conference.

Getting Involved with ELATE-GS

Graduate students interested in getting involved in the ELATE-GS are encouraged to join the ELATE-GS Facebook page. This will allow members to receive announcements pertaining to upcoming events, job openings, and other conversations within the community.

The ELATE-Graduate Strand is particularly interested in building up our membership and extending to universities that have been previously underrepresented in the Graduate Strand. We have developed a group of Campus Representatives who can serve as liaisons between the ELATE-GS Leadership Team and the graduate students at individual universities.

As a Campus Representative, you are invited to do the following:

  • Assist in ELATE-GS’s efforts to increase graduate student awareness of and involvement in ELATE and ELATE-GS at your own university;
  • Communicate with the ELATE-GS Leadership team to share ideas for how the organization can better support graduate students;
  • Publicize ELATE and ELATE-GS sponsored events (both at NCTE and at ELATE) and encourage graduate students at your university to participate.

If this sounds like something that you would be interested in (or if you know of others who might be), please reach out to Mary Neville, Membership Director of ELATE-GS. We would be very excited to have you on board!

If you are interested in learning more about the ELATE-GS, you are invited to contact members of the ELATE-GS Leadership Team for additional information.
