Story as the Landscape of Knowing
Advance registration has now closed, but you can still register onsite in Washington, DC!
Join your NCTE colleagues and friends as we examine the power of story as the landscape within which we map the significance of experience and build towers of knowledge.
Stories saturate our lives, woven so tightly into the fabric of the everyday that it’s easy to overlook their value as a way of knowing the world. They are the glue that creates community and binds us together around common purposes and values.
The 2014 NCTE Convention will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. Sessions will explore the many dimensions of story as the landscape of knowing--story as literary and informational text, story as cross-disciplinary collaborations, story as multiple literacies and genres, story as memory and identity, story as teacher knowledge and research, story as community and culture, story as marginalization, and story as resistance.
The 2014 NCTE Annual Convention is an opportunity to take back the right to tell our stories, to create our own landscapes, and to “talk story” with each other.
Can't make it to Washington? You can still participate!
