Journal of the Effective Schools Project
Call for Papers
The Effective Schools Project (ESP) at Tarleton State University is dedicated to the goals of improving school effectiveness, raising the achievement level of public school students, and improving the professional development of preservice and inservice educators. Established in 1988, ESP seeks to unite the efforts of public school educators and university faculty in striving for continuous improvement.
The official publication of ESP is The Journal of the Effective School Project (JESP). The journal is dedicated to the dissemination of information, ideas and research among the participants in ESP, as well as, other interested educators. Published annually, each issue of the journal focuses on a particular theme, but consideration is given to non-thematic articles.
The theme for the 2014 edition will focus on what one sees, hears, and experiences in effective classrooms committed to best practices. Teachers using best practices to teach academic and social concepts for engaging all students in active learning will be welcomed. Therefore, best practices which extend learning to ALL students (K-12) will allow readers to generate ideas for their respective schools. As we share our best practices, we help create effective classrooms—THE GOAL OF ESP.
