Article excerpt

Welcome to Volume 17 of Curriculum and Teaching Dialogue, the journal of The American Association of Teaching and Curriculum. The Association was founded in 1993 to promote the scholarly study of teaching and curriculum. Today, AATC's mission to serve as a national learned society for the scholarly field of teaching and curriculum continues. In larger universities, this field of study is often associated with departments of curriculum and instruction, teacher education, or elementary, middle and secondary education. In smaller universities and colleges, the field of study frequently is connected to colleges, departments or schools of education.

Several of AATC founders believed there was a strong need for an organization that served the field of teaching and curriculum and that continued a close connection between theory and practice. Thus, AATC continues to produce scholarship in teaching and curriculum through its annual conferences in October, through this journal, and through the interactions of its members. In addition, AATC has two annual dissertation awards in teaching and curriculum, the Francis P. Hunkins distinguished article award, as well as the annual O. L. Davis, Jr. Book Award. Moreover, AATC remains committed to practice in schools through outreach such as the "Take a Teacher to Dinner" program and through book drive donations to local area schools.
