The Language Arts Journal of Michigan (LAJM) is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that focuses on literacy and English language arts education at all instructional levels. Since 1985, the journal has been published biannually by the Michigan Council of Teachers of English (MCTE), a state affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). The LAJM publishes original articles in the following areas: English education methods, K-12 practice, classroom research, critical pedagogy, teacher narrative, literary criticism, review of professional works or young adult fiction, and essays, short fiction, or memoir. The contents of the LAJM do not necessarily reflect the views of MCTE or its members.

The LAJM is hosted by Scholarworks at Grand Valley State University. Please use this site as follows:
