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 2015 edition will focus on the professional passion to educate all students (K-12).  Educators are constantly seeking to meet the needs of all students as they strive to influence a diverse world for the better by investing in the lives and well-being of their students. Teachers engaging students while providing a safe atmosphere for learning manifest qualities needed in today’s diverse classroom. Therefore, best practices considering all students’ affective and cognitive needs enable students (K-12) to learn and communicate learning in a diverse world. As we share our best practices and passion for our students’ well-being, we assist in the creation of healthy classrooms—THE GOAL OF ESP.
