NCTE Centennial: 100 Years of Literacy Education Expertise - Previous Revision

100 Years of Literacy Education Expertise

Soon the National Council of Teachers of English will mark its Centennial, 100 years of leadership in literacy education. As our Centennial slogan suggests, we are reading the past and writing the future. Founded in Chicago in December 1911,  we invite you to return to the city November 17-20 for our 2011 Annual Convention.
