2019 NCTE Annual Convention

Baltimore, MD
November 21-24, 2019

This fall, when we come together in Baltimore, let’s inquire together. Let’s dare to wonder, to be bold and creative in our curiosity. Let’s reawaken our own spirit of inquiry as teachers, leaders, writers, readers, and thinkers.


Will this Be Your First NCTE Annual Convention?

See Our Resources and Tips for First-Time Attendees!

We want to help you get the most out of your first NCTE Annual Convention experience, so before you pack for your trip, please take note of some important information for first-time attendees.


Attend the First-Timer’s Coffee & Conversation

More information will be posted as it becomes available.


Connect with Others at the Section Get-Togethers

The Section Get-Togethers are an amazing opportunity to meet other educators with similar interests! These events do NOT require a ticket or RSVP. Join us for the Elementary Section Get-Together, the Middle Level Meet-Up, and the Secondary Section Get-Together. A session for college educators will also take place.


Join Us on Twitter

Are you planning to tweet from the Convention? If so, don’t forget the hashtag, #NCTE19.


Plan Your Schedule in Advance

No need to wait until you get to Baltimore to plan the sessions you’d like to attend. The Online Searchable Program will be posted in late September. The 2019 convention app will be available from Google Play or the iPhone App Store in October.


Meet Your Favorite Authors

Many award-winning authors will be scheduled to do author signings in the Exhibit Hall. A complete list of signings will be available onsite in Baltimore and posted online in October. Plan to be in the Exhibit Hall to meet your favorites!
