Last week I received information about two of my favorite literacy conferences. Registration is open for both!
The NCTE Annual Convention will be November 18-23 in Orlando, Florida. This conference is appropriate for reading and writing teachers at all levels, literacy coaches, principals, librarians, teacher educators, etc. You can find more information at http://www.ncte.org. I just love this conference and it’s killing me that I probably won’t be able to attend it this year.
However, I will be at the NRC Annual Conference December 1-4 in Fort Worth, Texas. This conference focuses on cutting edge literacy research. (Plus some colleagues and I will be doing a presentation on Latino children’s literature, which has to be worth the price of admission, doesn’t it?) Information on this conference can be found at http://nrconline.org/conference/conf10/.
