Communications & Publications
NYS TESOL Journal is the official journal of the New York State Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (NYS TESOL). It is a refereed academic journal published online only, biannually each spring and fall. Articles in the NYS TESOL Journal focus on theory, research, pedagogy, and educational policy related to the teaching of English to speakers of other languages, including U.S.-born emergent bilinguals, "generation 1.5" students, (im)migrants, and international students. Articles may focus on any educational level, from pre-kindergarten to university, as well as on adult school and workplace literacy settings. The inaugural issue of the NYS TESOL Journal was launched on January 1, 2014.
Call for submissions is now closed for the NYS TESOL Journal-Special Themed Issue "Reshaping ESOL: Addressing and Advancing Issues of Policy and Practice."
The next call for General Submissions will open May 15 (to September 15, 2021) for the January 2022 volume 9, issue 1.
Mosaic – formerly Idiom - is the online newsletter of NYS TESOL published in the spring and fall with an option for additional special editions. The newsletter is a much less formal discussion of ESOL topics, which makes it a perfect place to begin publishing professionally. Topics include getting started as a teacher, the job market, technology, current research, equity and social justice and teaching and mentoring practices. Mosaic articles cover all areas of ESOL instruction and administration from K-12, higher education, and intensive English programs to adult education, English for specific purposes and teacher training. Apart from general articles, there are also special sections: Cultural Connections, Identity and Liberation, Mentoring Matters, Promising Practices, Research in Brief, and Tech Tools.
