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.

We will be adding updates to this page soon. For now, check out the new things we have in store! 

Kick off your Convention with a full day of learning on Thursday. Last year, we piloted having sessions on Thursday afternoon and saw such success that we’ve implemented a full day of programming beginning at 9:30 a.m. Be sure to plan your travel so you can join us!

Can’t ever find time to visit the Exhibit Hall because you’re so engrossed in learning from education experts around the country? This year, we’ll be offering dedicated Exhibit Hall time from 4:45 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Friday. Stick around for the All-Attendee Event starting at 6:45 p.m.

For the second year, we’ll be celebrating texts and providing inspiration for building classroom libraries with Build Your Stack®!

More than 30 unique sessions featuring authors and educators talking about their favorite books and how to use them in the classroom will begin Friday morning in the Exhibit Hall.
