Constructivist Chronicle

Hello everyone.

I'm starting to gather submissions for the next issue of NAPCN's
newsletter, "The Constructivist Chronicle." If you have info on your
professional activities, or other announcements, please e-mail them to me.

Also, if you are interested in writing a brief article, let me know. While
all ideas will be seriously considered for inclusion in the newsletter, I
am espeically interested in developing "bios" of figures within the PCP
community. If you would like to do a bio of a NAPCN member, please let me
know ASAP.

I am also interested in a "point-counterpoint" kind of thing, where two
people each write on a relevant issue and take a different stance on the
issue. An issue that seems really important these days is "PCP'ers or
Constructivists?" I know people feel strongly one way or the other, with
some people wanting NAPCN to remain primarily PCP focused, and others
wanting to integrate more ideas that might be considered "constructivist."
If someone from each side of this issue would write a brief (3-5 pages)
piece arguing their point of view on this issue, I'd be very interested in
featuring it prominently in the next issue.

Of course, any ideas you have are welcomed!

Please contact me. I want the next issue to be our best yet!
