New England Association of Teachers of English 118th Annual Fall Conference
Empowering Authentic Voices and Identity: Fostering Inquiry and Engagement Through Culturally Responsive Literacy
October 23-24, 2020
The New England Association of Teachers of English invites educators and graduate students at all levels to submit workshop proposals for our fall conference. This year’s theme is Empowering Authentic Voices and Identity: Fostering Inquiry and Engagement Through Culturally Responsive Literacy.
NEATE values literacy and its essential role in our interactions with the world. We are looking for dynamic and interactive presentations that fit the needs of today’s educators and students.
We seek workshops that address the conference theme and/or fit into the following strands:
Using writing to explore and develop identity
Text as a medium for social justice and civic engagement
Media literacy as a platform for engaging students
Social emotional learning that encourages student voice in the classroom
Additional topics relevant to the conference theme
Seventy- five minute concurrent workshops will be held on Friday and Saturday. There will also be one session each day that will contain three 25 minute round table discussions. Conference participants are appreciative of interactive presentations that can be easily adapted to the classroom.
In response to feedback from participants in previous years, we ask that workshop presenters provide some handouts and post resources (such as classroom materials, presentation slides, etc.) on the NEATE website for future use. Presenters are encouraged (but not required) to submit articles for publication in NEATE’s journal, The Leaflet.
Presenters (including multiple presenters) are required to register for the conference, at a $25 discount, and are encouraged to participate in all conference activities.
To submit a proposal, please use the form link by June 1, 2020.
