Articles, Essays, and Research of interest to English Teachers

One of the greatest things about the Internet is the ability it gives teachers (and others!) to publish their work online for a worldwide audience. Many teachers and researchers have taken advantage of this, and have placed Master's theses, doctoral dissertations, research papers, or even personal essays related to their teaching experiences online. In addition, there are several online journals and magazines which offer articles of interest to teachers of all kinds.

Some of these links are to papers by individual teachers, while others offer a place for teachers to publish their own articles. Some are more personal in nature, while others are more research-oriented. I'm constantly amazed when I go through some of these links and see the plethora of different materials made available by and for teachers. There's some great stuff out there!

If you're a teacher, and would like to publish your teaching-related article online, I'd be glad to host it here for you (just drop me an email) if you don't have a website. Or, if you have a website, please feel free to submit it for linking here using the "Submit a Site" link above.
