The English Council publishes inside english, a journal whose largest reading audience are English faculty in California’s 111 community colleges. Promoting excellence in teaching English, the journal provides a forum for discussion of issues in teaching lower division composition and literature and serves as a vehicle for writers to express their ideas and challenge assumptions.

Have you found a forum to express your ideas about what good teaching is in the two-year college? Do you have an exceptional or particularly effective teaching strategy you would like to share with colleagues from across the state? If so, inside english, the journal of the English Council of California Two-Year Colleges, would like to hear from you.
In inside english, you’ll find articles that discuss the variety of challenges that confront you daily as a community college instructor: the teaching of composition, literature, creative writing, English as a second language, and writing-across-the-disciplines; in addition, we publish shorter articles on professional development ideas and opportunities and alternative classroom approaches.
You’ll also read i.e.‘s occasional columns — “Point of View” (philosophical or opinion pieces), “Talking Back” (responses to an article published in a recent issue), “One Good Idea” (descriptions of one teaching technique or assignment), “Part-Time Faculty Concerns,” and “Reviews” (reviews of textbooks, novels, films, or software used in teaching) — as well as poetry and letters to the editor.
