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.
During this Literacy Education Advocacy Month, you can find your voice and take action right from your own computer or phone.
Take one step today. By March 16, contact your representative to ask him or her to sign on to Rep. David Price’s "Dear Colleague" letter to appropriate $154.3M to the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Take another step tomorrow. Register for "Finding Our Voice -- Speaking Out to Build Support for Our Work," a free Web seminar on Tuesday, March 27, at 8 p.m. Eastern time, and learn how you can make a difference by sharing the importance of what you do as an educator.
NCTE Web seminars are interactive, multimedia professional development experiences delivered over the Internet featuring some of NCTE’s most experienced presenters.
Are you an instructional leader who wants to learn more about organizing groups of teachers for meaningful professional learning? NCTE is offering five complimentary Web seminars to help with just that. Space is limited, so register today!
