TJLE Spring 2024 Issue: Vol. 11 No. 1 

Theme: Collaboration for Success- Literacy Coaching and Professional Development in Education

Editor's Introduction

Greetings to those interested in literacy—particularly those with an interest in Texas literacy!

The theme of this issue is Collaboration for Success—Literacy Coaching and Professional Development in Education.Our hope with this issue was to share best practices for literacy coaching and collaborative teams in schools, as well as bring forward ideas for the future of literacy learning communities across the state and country. In this issue, we also shared a complementary resource, in which pairs poetry and picturebooks across curriculum and subject areas.  As we close out the 2023- 2024 academic year, we know that schools will be making decisions to strengthen the professional learning communities, and hope that literacy and its many components is at the forefront of plans in the coming years.  

As always, the Texas Journal of Literacy Education (TJLE) editorial team wishes to thank everyone who was a part of this issue—authors/researchers, new reviewers, and our faithful reviewers who are always there for us (we couldn’t produce this without you). As you browse through the scholarly and practitioner works in this issue, think about how the work shared can impact your classroom or someone you know. Share the journal contents with teachers, colleagues, and friends— but also consider sharing your expertise as well. Please see the Call for Manuscripts for our Fall 2024 issue at the end of this publication. This Fall’s themed issue will be: Social Justice Issues in Literacy Education. We want the TJLE to shine and reach the world with issues and solutions in literacy with a voice from the heart of Texas— we cannot do that without you.  

Cheers to an impactful culmination to the school year and much needed rest (and reading)!
