PLTE Professors of Literacy and Teacher Education
|PLTE - Professors of Literacy and Teacher Education||
Welcome to PLTE's Official Web Site
Professors of Literacy and Teacher Education (PLTE) is a Special Interest Group (SIG) of the International Literacy Association (ILA).
The mission of PLTE is to provide a community for professionals who educate future teachers, including, but not limited to, university faculty and graduate students.
Learn About the International Literacy Association
ILA is a global advocacy organization, and literacy is our cause, our passion, and our reason for being.
We publish cutting-edge research on literacy, and we translate this research into practical resources for educators, students, and leaders involved in spreading literacy all across the world. Armed with a deep understanding of the history of reading and literacy research, we advocate for teachers' and students' needs and set the standards for how literacy is taught and evaluated.
Making Some Changes
We are in the process of making some updates to our SIG's name and also revisiting our Vision and Mission statements to better align with the International Literacy Association. At our 2015 annual session in St. Louis, MO the membership voted to change our name to Professors of Literacy and Teacher Education. We are very excited to be embarking on this new shift and look forward to what is in the future of PLTE.
