Call for transcripts – Encyclopedia for Middle Grades Education (2nd ed.)

We invite you to submit an entry for the second edition of The Encyclopedia of Middle Grades Education, with a tentative publication date of fall 2015 by Information Age Publishing.

The Encyclopedia is designed to be a comprehensive overview of the field. It will contain alphabetically organized entries that address important concepts, ideas, terms, people, organizations, and seminal publications specific to middle grades education.

Attached please find a copy of the Call for Entries, List of Entries, and examples of both a short and long entry. We encourage you to forward this information to your middle level colleagues and graduate students. This is a great opportunity for associate and full professors to contribute entries based on their expertise; and for graduate students and new assistant professors to publish entries relevant to their interests.

Intent to submit an entry is due by January 16, 2015 with final submissions due on April 1, 2015. All submissions will be vetted for accuracy and completeness by the editors.
