Your ability to clearly explain why students should read “tough” literature or why high stakes tests aren’t the answer to leaving no child behind articulates NCTE’s mission for members of the greater education world and for the public. You bring NCTE policies and positions to life when you share your knowledge and experience as an educator with the public.

See "Finding Our Voice -- Speaking Out to Build Suport for Our Work," the first in a series of free Web seminar recordings designed to encourage teachers to speak out about the work they do in the classroom and how to do so wisely and through a number of venues.
