Distinguished Achievement Award for Feature Article


Maxine Sitts, President -- June 16, 1983 The judges citation:

This piece, on the seemingly innocuous and dreadfully dull topic of why the members of AECT ought to attend its convention, is marvelously done. Author Clayton is a man of letters and he has connected the mundane event of their convention with Plato's idea that what ultimately motivates us all is the quest for immortality. More than that, he has pulled it off. Superbly conceived and written -- a real delight -- who cares that the subject is mundane? That the author can make such a silk purse out of that sow's ear really deserves recognition

(For "Just Ourselves and Immortality," Instructional Innovator, XXVII, No.8, November, 1982, pp.24-27.)
