Grassroots Outreach


Grassroots, our popular TLT column about special events, groups, and homegrown resources within JALT has merged with Outreach, our international column that features stories from teachers and the learning groups they have formed around the world. The synergy of the merger has produced Grassroots Outreach, a place for essays and short reports that can motivate readers to take action and bring about positive change in our language teaching profession, here at home, as well as around the world. The editor of Grassroots Outreach warmly invites 750-word reports, essays, and interviews about events, groups, or resources that are organized inside or outside of JALT, and can be found inside or outside of Japan. Contributors may also submit articles in the form of interviews with language teachers based overseas who would not otherwise readily have access to a readership in Japan.
