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 2017 edition will focus on awakening the drive of teachers to excel, explore, and, thus, engage all students (K-12). Action research regarding engagement with the community and students in the classroom is welcome. Therefore, engagement practices considering all students’ (K-12) diverse learning and social needs will allow readers to reflect and consider engagement practices at their respective schools and communities. 

Specifically, discourse regarding the awakening of engagement style instruction and communication will be of value to educators seeking to engage students daily. We hope to be able to offer practical solutions educators are willing to implement in the K-12 setting.
