The Louisiana English Journal (LEJ) aids Louisiana's kindergarten through
college English language arts teachers by providing a forum for the exchange of
practical classroom ideas and methodology, and by showcasing creative writing.
An annual, published forum for members of the Louisiana Council of Teachers of
English, the Louisiana English Journal supports the research contributions and
stimulates an on-going dialogue
between elementary, middle, and secondary teachers; supervisors of English
programs; college and university faculty; teacher educators;local and state
agency English specialists; and professionals in related fields.
The 2005 focus of LEJ is grammar. Questions for onsideration include but are
not limited to: How do we reinvent grammar for the grade-level expectations of
the No Child Left Behind Act? Is teaching grammar obselete? Is it possible to
teach students grammar? What works and what does not work in the classroom?
Is there a better way to teach it? What kind of understanding of grammar and
its importance do teachers need to impart to students? What methods of
teaching grammar work best with ESL students? Why do college students in
advanced grammar classes "catch on" more quickly? How does grammar aid in
teaching the writing process? Which diagramming structure works best? Do
students actually learn formal grammar when studying a second language? Why is
English grammar so "hard"?
