THT Journal Call for papers


The Teachers Helping Teachers Journal, an anonymously peer-reviewed journal comprising research articles, reports and lesson plans, is now inviting submissions for its next issue (December 2022). 


Submissions of a practical nature (including lesson plans, activity ideas etc.) are particularly welcomed. While it is not a requirement that the submissions be directly related to a presentation at a THT event, please note that the readership of the Journal is both THT members and the populations we serve in our THT locations, so presentations that address the needs and interests of that broader population should be considered.
