Charter Letter



TO: Charter Members, NCTE Assembly on Research


FROM: James R. Squire

At its February meeting, the NCTE Executive Committee approved the formation of an Assembly on Research. The, first planning meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 19, during the Denver convention. The first slate of officers will be elected by mail this fall and will have by-laws and a program to propose. As a charter member, you should plan to attend and to bring other prospective members with you.

For want of another plan, the officers of the National Conference on Research on English will serve as officers pro tem for the new assembly. Charter members are requested to send news items to me on the attached sheet no later than August 1 for inclusion in a fall mailing.

Speaker at the first Assembly on Research will be Alan C. Purves, Professor of English Education, University of Illinois, on "The International Educational Assessment of Writing A Progress Report."

Spread the word.

K. Squire
Chair, pro tem
