Just in time for Teacher Appreciation Week, SEED Co-director and English teacher Emily Style's latest article, "Curriculum as Encounter: Selves and Shelves," has appeared in the May issue of English Journal (available to NCTE members only). The piece extends her previous articles on "Curriculum as Window and Mirror" and "Resources and Strategies for Doing Window and Mirror Curriculum Work."
