Augustana College Magazine is published by the Office of Communication and Marketing at Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois.
Augustana College, rooted in the liberal arts and sciences and a Lutheran expression of the Christian faith, is committed to offering a challenging education that develops qualities of mind, spirit and body necessary for a rewarding life of leadership and service in a diverse and changing world.
The Celebration of Learning began as a student research symposium in 1997, and is the result of hundreds of hours of collaborative work between students and faculty members.
This annual event gives students the opportunity to share their scholarly and creative work and be a part of a campus-wide community of learners. Student presentations and performances run concurrently with faculty panels on scholarship and teaching. Featured student, faculty, and alumni speakers are scheduled throughout the event.
Intersections is a publication by and largely for the academic communities of the twenty-six colleges and universities of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Each issue reflects on the intersection of faith, learning, and teaching within Lutheran higher education. It is the central publication of the Network of ELCA Colleges and Universities, and has its home at Augustana College, Rock Island, Illinois, the institutional sponsor of the publication. Intersections extends and enhances discussions fostered by the annual Vocation of the Lutheran College Conference, together lifting up the vocation of Lutheran colleges and universities. It aims to raise the level of awareness among faculty, staff, and administration about the Lutheran heritage and church-relatedness of their institutions, especially as these intersect with contemporary challenges, opportunities, and initiatives.

Tackle Box (Education)
Each year, students enrolled in EDUC411/412, Literacy in the Content Areas, learn the theories and best practices for empowering all students to read, write, and learn more effectively.
The publication is called a Tackle Box because, much like a fishing tackle box, this document has lures, hooks, and bait to help the teachers reel in their students as they work with text in the classroom. Since different schools of fish require different lures or bait, this tackle box of strategies provides a variety of useful gear for all teachers.
The future teachers in this class find this resource useful and valuable in their classrooms. Frequently, other classroom teachers have asked to borrow this resource, so we have decided to make it accessible to everyone.
