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"?
