Journal of the Effective Schools Project

Call for Papers

The Effective Schools Project (ESP) at Tarleton State University is dedicated to the goals of improving school effectiveness, raising the achievement level of public school students, and improving the professional development of preservice and inservice educators. Established in 1988, ESP seeks to unite the efforts of public school educators and university faculty in striving for continuous improvement.

The official publication of ESP is The Journal of the Effective School Project (JESP). The journal is dedicated to the dissemination of information, ideas and research among the participants in ESP, as well as, other interested educators. Published annually, each issue of the journal focuses on a particular theme, but consideration is given to non-thematic articles.

The theme for the 2016 edition will focus on enhancing teaching and learning with innovating instruction (K-12).  JESP is seeking manuscripts utilizing action research illustrating the innovative ideas and strategies teachers are using to engage students in learning. As we share our innovative practices to engage our students, we find new tools and ideas to enhance the learning environment—THE GOAL OF ESP.
