The Bread Loaf Teacher Network Journal—previously published as the Bread Loaf Teacher Magazine—was created in 1993 by the Bread Loaf School of English, funded by the Wallace-Reader's Digest Funds. The magazine was edited for several years by Chris Benson at Clemson University, and then produced by guest editors Sheri Skelton, an Alaskan teacher, and most recently by South Carolina teacher Gail Denton. The articles are written by members of the Bread Loaf Teacher Network and other associates of the Bread Loaf School of English.
We have now gone digital! Tom McKenna, BLTN director of communications, Alaska teacher, and Bread Loaf graduate (MA '96), and co-editors Christ Benson and Sheri Skelton, have now produced four journal editions. See the sidebar for links and themes. We're proud of the new journal and look forward to the next edition, scheduled to appear this coming summer. Please visit and comment on the articles. Contact Tom McKenna to propose an article or a theme.

Each issue of the magazine focuses on a designated theme, all of which are of concern to teachers. Issues have addressed themes of teacher research, changing practice, teaching with technology, building community, school reform, standards, connected teaching and learning, and how Bread Loaf scholarship influences teaching practice.
