CALL FOR ARTICLES: Language and Inclusive Education for EENET Newsletter 2008
Enabling Education Network (EENET) Newsletter 2008: Call for articles
In the 2008 edition of EENET’s newsletter, “Enabling Education”, we hope to focus on the topic of:
language and inclusive education
Could you write a short article on this topic? If so, EENET wants to hear from you! Here are some ideas for what you could send to EENET:
They’d like to receive articles that discuss:
- The development of national education policies that focus on language issues as part of a move towards inclusive education.
- Practical programmes/projects that are promoting educational inclusion through the use of mother-tongue, bilingual or multilingual approaches.
- Inclusive education programmes that target indigenous populations, refugees, internally displaced people or other migrants, with a focus on language and cultural issues.
- Inclusive education policies and/or programmes that take into account other language issues (e.g. sign language, use of Braille, etc).
- Inclusive education programmes/projects that focus generally on spoken language accessibility and accessibility of written teaching/learning materials for all learners (in terms of using language that is easy-to-read/understand).
- Inclusive practice in the teaching of foreign languages as curriculum subjects.
- Any other issues relating to inclusive education and language!
If you are not an experienced writer, don’t worry. Send us your ideas and we will try to help you to develop these ideas into an article.
You may also find it helpful to look at some previous newsletter articles when you are developing ideas for your own article. If you don’t already have copies of “Enabling Education”, please ask us to send you some, or look at the newsletters on our website www.eenet.org.uk. Newsletters are usually in English, but some selected articles and issues are available in translation to other languages such as Portuguese, Spanish, French, Kishwali, and Arabic.
We really encourage you to send us articles that have been researched/written by, or in collaboration with, children and young people. We also always welcome articles that make use of drawings, photos, etc.
Number of words: articles should be about 700 words long.
Deadline: first drafts or article ideas should be sent to us by 18th February 2008.
Images: if you would like us to print a photograph or drawing with your article, please send us either the original print/drawing or email us a high resolution digital image.
If you are not able to write about language issues, don’t worry. We still need articles about other aspects of inclusive education for our newsletter and website.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Some general guidelines for writing newsletter articles can be found on our website at http://www.eenet.org.uk/about/guidelines.shtml
