3 Ways You Can Get Involved in Advocacy:
1.Learn More about NCTE Advocacy Day 2017:
We’ll be posting updates to the website as details come in, but all are invited to join NCTE for a full day of discussion about education policy and visits to legislative offices on Capitol Hill. We’re also planning several activities you can do at the local level if you want to be involved but can’t come to DC.
2. Learn about Everyday Advocacy
We are teachers. We know what happens in the worlds of schools. How can we leverage our expertise to create the changes we know matter most? This resource-rich website explores how we can become advocates for teachers, for teaching, and for student learning. Learn how to enter the public conversation in ways that are smart, safe, and savvy. Find your voice and help change the conversation. Become an everyday advocate.
3. Write for Literacy & NCTE
Literacy & NCTE is seeking original pieces from NCTE members on a variety of topics that impact teachers and students. We are particularly looking for pieces on topics for which you are passionate. Topics can range from teaching grammar to discussing the school-to-prison pipeline to how teachers take care of themselves within a rigorous profession and everything in between. We also encourage submissions by students. [If they are minors, we require a guardian’s permission to publish.] All blogs are shared on social media.
