The National Association for the Teaching of English (NATE) is the UK subject teacher association for all aspects of English from pre-school to university. NATE supports effective teaching and learning, keeps teachers informed about current developments and provides them with a voice at a national level.
NATE has several committees and standing working parties. It conducts research into the teaching of English and is involved in curriculum development initiatives with the Arts Council and Becta. NATE is also a member of the International Federation of the Teachers of English.
NATE publishes four periodicals, all of which are published three times a year and free to members:
A newsletter updating members on news in the world of English teaching and NATE.
NATE Classroom is NATE's magazine aimed at primary and secondary teachers of English. The magazine contains articles on practical teaching strategies and resources as well as book reviews that are relevant to English teachers. NATE Classroom was first published in 2007. Before this, NATE members were sent either The Primary English Magazine or the The Secondary English Magazine, which were published by Garth Publishing Services, rather than in-house at NATE.
English Drama Media
English Drama Media (EDM) is NATE's professional journal. It is aimed at anyone involved in the teaching of English and contains articles on trends in English teaching, research, opinion pieces and so on. Its issues are often themed. EDM launched in 2004. It effectively replaced The English and Media Magazine, which was published by the English and Media Centre and available to NATE members until it ceased publication in 2002.
English in Education
English in Education is NATE's academic research journal. Articles are peer-reviewed and aimed at those conducting research in education. It was first published in 1967 and replaced the short-lived NATE Bulletin, which was published from 1964 until 1966.
