Professor Michael Coyne of the Neag School’s Department of Educational Psychology has been named co-editor-in-chief of The Elementary School Journal.

Also joining the new editorial team are Suzanne Wilson, Neag Endowed Professor of Teacher Education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, and Sarah Woulfin, assistant professor in the Department of Educational Leadership, who will serve as associate editors.

This prestigious journal, first published in 1900, seeks to serve researchers, teacher educators, and practitioners in elementary and middle school education with peer-reviewed articles pertaining to education theory and research and their implications for teaching practice. It is issued on a quarterly basis by the University of Chicago Press.

“We are excited to bring the Elementary School Journal to the Neag School,” Coyne says. “ESJ is unique in its scope and breadth — it publishes cutting-edge articles across content areas including reading, mathematics, science, and policy research. Because of its interdisciplinary focus, ESJ reaches a wide audience of researchers and practitioners in both general and special education.”
