WOW Stories: Connections from the Classroom is seeking manuscripts for publication in our refereed electronic journal, which is published two or three times each year. Manuscripts should focus on descriptions of practice connecting children and literature in ways that promote intercultural understanding. We especially welcome submissions by classroom teachers and educators.
- Describe classroom or library practice (K-12) that connects children and literature in ways that promote intercultural understanding.
- Take the form of a story or vignette that one educator might tell to another to share the responses of students to literature.
- Include children’s voices where appropriate through quotes of student talk, examples of student work, audio clips, or video clips.
- Include charts, graphs, children’s artifacts, bulleted points, and/or figures wherever possible to vary the format and enhance the content of the article.
- Be less than 2000 words.
As an electronic journal, WOW Stories can accommodate audio/visual clips as part of teacher vignettes. We particularly invite manuscripts written as a story that one educator might tell to another to share the ways in which students engaged with literature. Read the journal to see examples of the types of manuscripts that we are seeking and check back here for submission guideline updates.
