"The first serious journal about school change by teachers for teachers.'' That is how a forthcoming peer-reviewed quarterly from the National Education Association and Corwin Press is described in literature soliciting articles for its September start-up.
Teaching and Change will highlight K-12 teachers' personal experiences in implementing innovative classroom practices and other reforms. Its audience will comprise teachers, administrators, college students and faculty, researchers, policymakers, and concerned community members.
A board of consulting editors will review the articles, from 3,000 words to 6,000 words. Publishing dates are September, December, March, and June.
Teaching and Change is available at a discounted introductory rate of $27 a year. Information is available from Corwin Press, P.O. Box 2526, Newbury Park, Calif. 91319-8526. Requests on submissions should be sent to the editor, Karen Zauber, National Education Association, 1201 16th St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036.
The message of a new magazine created for and by young girls is "stick up for yourself.''
New Moon: The Magazine for Girls and Their Dreams is aimed at girls 8 to 14 years old. A companion publication, New Moon Parenting, offers advice to adults on supportive activities for girls.
Designed to explore the passage from girlhood to womanhood, the magazine hopes, in the words of its editors, to "build a healthy resistance'' to gender inequities.
The March inaugural issue featured short stories; art work; book, movie, and software reviews; and fairy tales with female heroes.
Both publications will appear six times a year, starting in September. The subscription rate for each is $25 a year. Information is available from New Moon Publishing, P.O. Box 3587, Duluth, Minn. 55803-3587; (218) 728-5507.
