This day-long workshop, co-sponsored by the NCTE Assembly for Research and the Conference on English Education, is scheduled to be held at the Hull-House Museum and features three sessions for K-adult literacy teachers, teacher educators, graduate students, and researchers. Participants will learn about (1) the legacy of Jane Addams as it applies to our work as literacy educators who advocate for students from marginalized groups; (2) alternative learning environments in which children share their personal voices and celebrate the power of their imaginations; and (3) an English curriculum created for adult learners honoring their experiences as parents and workers and that teaches literacy skills in the context of Marxist analyses of the students' positions within the current political economy. Presenters include Erica Halverson, Elizabeth Levy, David Schaafsma, and Todd DeStigter. Participants will be invited to attend a Barrel of Monkeys performance at 7:30 pm of "That's Weird, Grandma," a revue of popular student-authored stories.
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.
