ORTESOL is an affiliate of TESOL and was founded in 1977. We are a membership-based association serving teachers, volunteers, administrators, researchers, and pre-service educators of the ESL profession in the state of Oregon.
Our Mission Statement
ORTESOL is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to promote scholarship, disseminate information, strengthen instruction and research at all levels in the teaching of English to speakers of other languages, and to cooperate in appropriate ways with other groups having similar concerns.
The 2020 ORTESOL Journal is now complete
The journal is locally peer-reviewed and indexed on ERIC and ProQuest. We regularly feature out-of-state authors.
If you are interested in writing for the ORTESOL Journal, please see the Submission Guidelines.
