Partially Off Site at the Epcot Center (see details below)
To register for this event, please see convention registration.
Participants in this full day workshop will consider what it means to write in a globalized, multiliterate world. Presentations and activities will explore writing in multiple genres and from multiple perspectives. Part of the afternoon will be dedicated to “writing around the world” at the World Showcase at Epcot Center. At 1:30 p.m. the participants will catch the Epcot Bus. Once arriving at Epcot, participants will be a part of a writing marathon using inquiry questions that were discussed earlier in the day.
To take part in the Epcot experience, participants will need to purchase a ½ day ticket to Epcot. The price is $57.27 and tickets must be purchased in advance of the convention on the NCTE website. Choose the ticket that begins at 2:00 p.m. The ticket is good until the Park closes, so you will be able to take advantage of the wonderful restaurants and everything that Epcot has to offer once you have finished your writing.
After the convention, participants will work to revise drafts of the writing completed during the marathon. After the workshop, participants will be invited to participate in a webinar where they can receive feedback on their writing and instruction for publishing their work. In January there will be a celebration of the final drafts with online publication of the writing begun in Orlando.
Though the workshop is designed to be a full day experience in Orlando, if participants choose not to take part in the writing marathon at Epcot, they will still be encouraged to write independently and to participate in follow-up activities.
The CEE Strand is a program of sessions and meetings that are designed for those who are engaged in the preparation, support, and continuing education of teachers of English language arts.
L. Ramon Veal Research Roundtable - Sunday, November 21, 2010, 8:30 - 9:45 a.m. (Session L.45) - Fiesta Ballroom Salon I, Coronado
The chairs of the L. Ramon Veal Research Roundtable are seeking submissions for the 2010 Roundtable, to be held Sunday, November 21 at the NCTE convention. The Roundtable, which is sponsored by CEE, serves as a writers’ workshop for researchers. Experienced researchers, grad students, and teacher researchers are invited to submit drafts of papers, proposals, or research-in-progress along with questions that serve to direct readers’ attention. Participants are grouped at tables with a senior scholar familiar with the table’s thematic topic, and research roundtable participants give and receive feedback on submissions. The research roundtable is characterized by friendly yet extremely professional interactions from participants offering a variety of perspectives. Submission deadline is November 5.
For more information or details about how to make a submission, contact co-chairs Chris Goering or Shelbie Witte.
