In this essay, Christian Z. Goering shares his reaction to the new as co-chair of the 2019–2021 NCTE Steering Committee for the ELA 7–12 Preparation Standards, past chair of ELATE, and current teacher educator. Believing that these standards have the ability to challenge and change what it means to teach ELA, he considers how students, faculty, and the field can take up and embrace antiracist/antibias instruction.
