Connected Educator Month: October 2015

Connected Educator Month

Most public conversation around assessment tends to focus on state testing and its use for evaluating teachers and schools. NCTE is leading the theme "Innovations in Assessment" for Connected Educator Month 2015 in October. We invite you to participate to show how we might shift the conversation toward a more holistic and well-rounded understanding of how we can know what kids know and can do.

National Day on Writing

Join NCTE for the National Day on Writing by participating in the Tweet-Up on October 20 using the #WhyIWrite hashtag and include visual representations in photos, film, and graphics.

What Does It Mean to Advocate for Literacy? 
#nctechat archive with hosts Ernest Morrell & Darren Cambridge

The Policy Analysis Initiative is a network of NCTE volunteers who track state policy developments impacting English language arts, English studies, literacy, and the humanities. Volunteers in each state provide analyzed information about state policies in which educators can better participate in the policymaking process that affects them, their students, their institutions, and their communities.


NCTE Assembly

The Assembly on Literature for Adolescents of NCTE (ALAN) promotes communication and cooperation among all individuals who have a special interest in adolescent literature, presents programs and conferences on this subject, promotes and increases the number of articles and publications devoted to it and integrates the efforts of all those with an interest in this literature.
