Elementary Section - Previous Revision

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.
