Description

In his role as executive director of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), the late Kent D. Williamson influenced the course of literacy teaching and learning, especially in the first years of the twenty-first century. In this collection, influential scholars and practitioners pause to reflect on his intellectual leadership and the impact of his vision.

Taken together, these essays document the profession’s hard-earned wisdom about the issues and challenges facing literacy educators in the current era of dramatic social, cultural, and technological change. The collection also launches the work of the newly established Kent D. Williamson Policy and Advocacy Center in Washington, DC, as it demonstrates ways in which the profession can connect literacy research, theory, and practice to educational policy and advocacy.
