Thank you for your continued support of the International Journal of the Whole Child and our
commitment to holistic learning and to the development of the whole child. We are excited to
announce coming in the fall, a new IJWC column titled “Education: Words and Meanings” will
provide readers with clarification associated with terms and words used in educational practice
and writing. Frequently, words may be used interchangeably when, in fact, the meanings are
dissimilar. In other instances, terms may not be as familiar with readers and require further
description in order to enhance understanding. Finally, this new column supports readers with
additional references to extend their knowledge regarding concepts, practices, and theories.
Words and terms represent meaning. It is important we, as educators, use the educational
language with accuracy, intentionality, and as well with an understanding of a term’s origin.
The submission deadline for the Fall 2023 issue is September 30th and the Spring 2024
submission deadline is February 28th. The Fall 2023 will be published in December 2023 and the
Spring 2024 issue will be published in May 2024. Thank you again for your continued support.
We look forward to seeing you in Fall 2023.
