Virginia English Journal is VATE’s refereed journal.  It is published twice each year, and contains articles of interest to teachers of English, teacher educators, and others concerned with the teaching of English.

In the fall, we gathered in Virginia Beach and explored the connection between Reading and Writing.  The theme for the 2023 Winter Edition of the VEJ has the same scope.  Let us know how reading and writing connects you to yourself, to others, to the past and how it builds a bridge to the future.  How do you help your students find meaning through writing?  How do you use reading to help students understand who they are, and what the world is like beyond themselves?  How have you used writing and reading both as mirrors and as windows in our diverse world?  How have you moved students to see reading and writing not just as a required task, but as an opportunity for growth and connection?
