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.

Registration Rates

Registration for the 2019 NCTE Annual Convention includes access to all General Sessions, concurrent sessions, Special Interest Group meetings, the Now Screening film festival, NCTE Central, and the Exhibit Hall. Attendees who have already registered but wish to add meal tickets, workshops, or other activities can use the unique url sent to them in their receipt and add tickets to their registration.

Register by November 11 for the best rates. After November 11, registrations will still be accepted here as well as onsite at the Baltimore Convention Center at the higher price.

Group Rate: Greatly enhance your convention experience by bringing a team— we offer registration at a 20% discount if a school or district sends 10 or more teachers and makes a single payment to cover the balance of the invoice. (The discount does not include additional paid events.) Every member of your team will return to work energized by what they’ve learned and ready to collaborate on implementing the new ideas. Register your group here.

Local Teacher Rate (available to teachers who live or teach in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC): NCTE is offering special pricing for teachers who work in schools within the local area.

NCTE Members Please Note: It is important that you use the exact last name and email combination that you use with your NCTE account. If you have a Gmail address on file with NCTE but try to use your school email, our database won’t know who you are and won’t find a match—it assumes you are a nonmember. Similarly, if you have a hyphenated last name on your NCTE account but enter your name with a space instead of the hyphen when registering, the database will not find a match.

Sign Language Interpreters: NCTE provides American Sign Language (ASL)  at the following convention sessions:

  • General Sessions on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
  • First-Year Attendee Event on Friday
  • Board of Directors Meeting on Friday
  • All-Attendee Event on Friday
  • NCTE Awards Session on Saturday
  • ALAN Breakfast on Saturday
  • ALAN Workshop on Monday & Tuesday

To arrange for SLI assistance for sessions other than those listed above, please contact Julie Gebron at 800-900-9478, ext. 1204, or julie.gebron [at] purple.us.
