Professor appointed to NCTE Standing Committee

October 14, 2010

Django Paris, assistant professor of English at ASU, recently was appointed to serve as a member of the Standing Committee on Research for the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). His three-year term will begin after the 2010 Annual Convention scheduled for November 18-23, in Orlando, Fla.
In its efforts to encourage and disseminate research relevant to NCTE and its individual members, the Standing Committee on Research is charged to advise the NCTE Executive Committee and other council groups on emerging research findings, particularly those germane to focal issues identified by the Executive Committee; to make ELA researchers and the Executive Committee aware of under-researched areas and areas where findings are contradictory, and encourage members of the council to undertake studies in one or more of those areas; to consider producing papers that summarize major research studies in language that practitioners at all levels can understand; and
to continue to participate in presenting a strong research strand at the NCTE Annual Convention and pursue topics and themes that will attract a broader audience.
The National Council of Teachers of English, with 40,000 individual and institutional members worldwide, is dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of English and the language arts at all levels of education.  For more information, please visit
