NCTE's National Day on Writing

October 20 is NCTE's second National Day on Writing!
How will you celebrate the day?


Join Us in Orlando in Novembr!

Share this flier with your colleagues, link to it from your blog, post it at your university or school, and help spread the word about NCTE's 100th Annual Convention!

Are You Connected?

NCTE will soon open its Connected Community, a place where members will meet colleagues with similar interests, discuss classroom ideas, explore research, and share professional materials. Highlights will include a member directory, a resource library and literacy Wikipedia, news of member accomplishments, and more.

INBOXOne more way to stay connected with NCTE, its members, other leaders, and the profession is by reading NCTE's INBOX. This e-newsletter, now sent to members every week and nonmembers just once a month, keeps you up to date on news in literacy education, offers ideas for your classroom and resources for professional learning, and spotlights the work and expertise of members and leaders in NCTE's sections (elementary, middle level, secondary, college) and constituent groups (CEE, CCCC, CEL, WLU, TYCA).

Connect with Your Professional Community
at the Annual Convention
This year's NCTE Convention in Orlando, "Teachers and Students Together: Living Literate Lives," will feature more than 700 sessions, workshops, and a host of speakers. Don't wait! Register now, make your hotel reservations, and start planning your convention program today.

Many Council groups -- affiliates, assemblies, sections (elementary, middle level, secondary, and college), committees, commissions, conferences (CCCC, CEE, CEL, WLU), and associations (TYCA) -- hold sessions, luncheons, or workshops during the Convention; search the Convention Program for these events (working meetings aren't listed in the program; if you need information on when your group is meeting, please contact your group's chair or NCTE).

Centennial 5K Fun Run/Walk
NCTE's 100th Anniversary!When you register for the 2010 Convention, be sure to sign up for the Centennial 5K Fun Run/Walk, to be held on Saturday, November 20, at 6:15 a.m. The 5K course will take you around the beautiful Coronado Springs Resort. Funds raised for this event will benefit the NCTE Centennial Celebration at next year's Convention in Chicago.
