Watch history come to life in this documentary that chronicles the influence and importance of the 100-year-old National Council of Teachers of English.
Illustrated by vivid archival photographs, dramatic readings from historical documents, and lively scenes from contemporary classrooms and professional conventions, the NCTE Centennial Film: Reading the Past, Writing the Future was created in cooperation with the NCTE Centennial Task Force by English teacher John Golden and his cinematographer partner Laura Lull. Incorporating the voices of today’s students and teachers and featuring numerous interviews with literacy leaders, Reading the Past, Writing the Future both celebrates the centennial of NCTE and raises important questions and observations about American literacy education.
