Awards to USA English teachers at two-year colleges to recognize educational programs that improve language learning for students. The award program honors teachers for outstanding initiatives that help students achieve career, college, and personal goals. Program activities include curriculum, faculty development, and assessment.
Program applications will be evaluated using the following criteria:
Attention to the three areas of program activity: curriculum, faculty development, and assessment. Not all applications will necessarily attend to each area equally, but the best programmatic initiatives understand how these areas are related and can account for their relationships.
Responsiveness to current exigencies, such as local, national, and disciplinary trends and conversations.
Innovation, including novel strategies and tactics for addressing exigencies and programmatic issues.
Evidence of the initiative’s success. Success can be measured in different ways and may include a variety of different kinds of evidence depending on the initiative.
Details about the scope and impact of the program, including information about various aspects of the programmatic initiative and key stakeholders, such as participants who support the initiative and populations served by the program.
