Latino Caucus - Previous Revision

The Latino Caucus of NCTE/CCCC is a network of Latino/a educators in English studies, literacy and language arts.  Our purpose is to:

  • exchange ideas,
  • serve as a resource for  members, the educational community and the general public,
  • and support activities that promote the learning and advancement of students and teachers of color.

Any Latino/a educator, or like-minded educator, or pre-service educator who is a member of NCTE is invited to join us.

MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada
Grand Ballroom Room 113, Level One

When most of us think of Las Vegas, our minds shift to the incessant ring of slot machines, the glare of pulsing neon lights, the glitz and the glamour of the Vegas Strip, but tonight we celebrate the talents of students who reside in the backdrop of the revelry. So hear the call of drums, la música, festive colors, hip hop style, and talented students, as the Black and Latino Caucuses celebrate the children of Las Vegas. Spoken word poetry, mariachis, a drum line, dramatic monologues, and various dance groups, all performed by youth from Las Vegas schools. These young people will delight you and make you proud to live in our diverse world. After the performances, stay and relax with us, as we continue our celebration with a wine and cheese reception topped off with dancing and head bopping to the rhythms of a DJ. Remember, Las Vegas is a town that never sleeps! So you will still have time to go out and enjoy after this amazing evening presented collectively by the Black and Latino Caucuses for all NCTE members and guests.
