From February 2013, NATE's new Teaching English magazine will combine the most popular features of both English Drama Media and NATE Classroom magazine.
The archive of all issues of English Drama Media will continue to be available to members free of charge.

It is essential reading for everyone involved in the teaching of English, drama and media, promoting dynamic approaches to curriculum and pedagogy and keeping the profession in touch with national debates and developments. The journal is available as part of the NATE subscription package. All visitors to this site can access a sample article from the most recent issue and view a roundup of themes and content in the archive.
NATE's other termly publication for members continues to be the prestigious research journal English in Education. Articles and features from all three publications are gathered together in themed NATE Collections, also free to download by members.
