Faces of Advocacy
2016 NCTE Annual Convention
Georgia World Congress Center
November 17-20, 2016
Workshops: November 17, 20-22
When we hear the word "advocacy" in connection to our profession, every one of us—teachers, instructors, professors, researchers, writers—has a different definition of what that means. There are people who might think that this only has to do with talking to senators and representatives in government about affecting changes on a state or national level. While this is certainly a part of advocacy, it is not the only piece of advocacy that this Convention wishes to explore.

The deadline to submit program proposals was 11:59 PST January 13. Program decisions will be emailed in May.
You can also learn more about the ideas behind this convention theme in the following video, in which Shekema Silveri, NCTE Secondary Section Representative-at-Large, interviews Susan Houser.
Due to an error, our proposal system listed a 750-word limit for the description section between the hours of 11:00 a.m. CST on January 11 to 5:00 pm CST on January 12. The description word limit for all proposals is in fact 500 words. In order to ensure fairness across the review process, those who submitted proposals exceeding the actual limit were invited to revise their word counts down to 500. We regret this error and appreciate the feedback from members who helped us to identify and remedy the problem.
