Significant challenges face educators as we enter the first decade of the 21st century. High-stakes testing and the standards movement present challenges to teachers, administrators, students, and parents as each group seeks ways to successfully navigate through the consequences of policy decisions in education. Curriculum issues capture our attention as we struggle with questions of authenticity, standards, interdisciplinary and integrated approaches to teaching and learning, and content specific curriculum. Policy decisions including the connection to teaching and learning to assessment and high-stakes testing and professional development present opportunities for active exploration for teachers and researchers. Literacy issues focusing on reading and writing across the curriculum and reading and writing workshop environments provide important K-12 opportunities to contribute to a vital professional conversation. To be most helpful, empirical studies should be clear in both methodology and style providing opportunities for study replication. Qualitative studies must be grounded in theoretical and methodological studies. All papers should be clearly presented.
