To celebrate composition in all its forms, we are inviting diverse participants--students, teachers, parents, grandparents, service and industrial workers, managers, business owners, legislators, retirees, and many more--to submit a piece of writing to the National Gallery of Writing.
101st Annual Convention of NCTE
November 17-20, 2011, Chicago, Illinois
The theme of the 2011 Annual Convention is “Reading the Past, Writing the Future.” Program chair and NCTE President-Elect Keith Gilyard says, "For next year in Chicago, where our organization began with great determination in 1911, we plan to offer a program that features testimony, inquiry, reflection, experimentation, analysis, and speculation. With the rich history of NCTE as a backdrop -- from the rebellious founders who were combating elite-university encroachment on high school curriculums to courageous opponents of racist, sexist, and homophobic instruction to committed supporters of productively principled teacher autonomy and cultural inclusiveness -- we will gather to take stock of our collective journey and to renew ourselves."
