Seventy-five-minute sessions in which two or more individuals speak, leaving at least 15 minutes for audience questions and responses. In one format, each speaker may present 15 to 20 minutes. In another format, each speaker may make brief opening remarks (for example, 5 minutes) before the panel enters into a moderated discussion.
Seventy-five-minute sessions in which a series of small-group discussions about related aspects of a specific topic or theme are led by leaders at individual round tables. Roundtables may be proposed, or they may be created in the convention planning process from individual proposals.
Seventy-five-minute sessions in which a number of presenters display posters, or other artifacts of their research or teaching practices, standing nearby to explain and discuss, informally, their displayed work. Posters are most often submitted by one speaker. The planning committee or chair may assign individual proposals to poster sessions.
Seventy-five-minute sessions with three or four presenters who engage participants, as if they were students, in promising teaching practices.
Presentations submitted by one speaker. These proposals will be combined by the NCTE Convention Planning Committee with other individual proposals to make full sessions or roundtables. Committee members may also assign individual proposals to poster sessions. Individual proposals should be crafted to fit into a 15-20 minute presentation during a roundtable or combined session.
Workshops take place Thursday, November 16. Proposals must be explicit about the activities in which participants will engage and the apportionment of time to various activities throughout the day. Only proposals with more than one presenter will be considered. Proposals cannot include planned meal functions.
