With a participant’s seasoned insight and a historian’s perspective, J. N. Hook has developed an engaging and accurate chronology of NCTE—from its inconspicuous birth in 1911 through its influential maturity in 1978. Hook, the Council’s first Executive Secretary (1954-60), illuminates such significant aspects of NCTE’s history as the 1911 protest by the nation’s English teachers against overly specific college entrance requirements—the catalyst for the organization of NCTE; the critical launching of the Council’s first official publication, English Journal; the influential Reorganization Report of 1917; and the Council’s ideological positions during the wars and the Depression years. Complemented by 23 illustrations, the text balances the history of what NCTE has done with projections for what still must be done.
