The Elementary Section of NCTE represents a diverse group of teachers, literacy coaches, reading and special education interventionists, teacher educators, and school administrators interested in literacy development and in literacy teaching at the elementary school level. Our primary task is to connect and support teachers as they work closely with students, administrators, and families to develop and promote lifelong literacy learning. We cordially welcome all educators interested in reading, writing and the language arts.
NCTE offers the resources, Responding to Tragedy in Schools: Supporting Teachers and Students, for working with your students in the aftermath of the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Looking for a convenient way to share learning resources from the NCTE Annual Convention? More than 300 papers, powerpoints, videos, and other artifacts shared by those who presented ideas and insights during convention sessions in Las Vegas are now available here.
If you have additional materials to share, click on the "upload your materials" tab and follow the instructions for how to upload materials.
