NCTE’s Secondary Section has selected a program with the best professional learning you’ll ever find, and a giant network of colleagues whom you’ll want to stay connected to all year long.
Whether you love teaching poetry, the Bard, critical literacy, choice reading, disciplinary writing, or some other specialty of grades 9–12, this Convention has you covered.
WHAT KINDS OF SESSIONS CAN I ATTEND?
More than 200 sessions on the Convention program are designated at the secondary level. Here are just a few of the topics that will be covered:
- High School Matters
- Daring to Dig out of Darkness: Choosing to Collectively Pursue Anti-Racist and Equitable Teaching in a High School ELA Department
- A Guiding Light: Using Critical Pedagogy to Teach YA Literature in the Secondary Classroom
- Lights! Camera! Magic! Critical Theory in the Secondary Classroom through Encanto and Other Magical Texts
- Strategies as Lampposts: Using Content Area Literacy Strategies AND Disciplinary Literacy in Secondary ELA to Support Adolescents’ Literacy Development
I’M A SCHOOL PRINCIPAL—ARE THERE SESSIONS FOR ME?
This Convention is rich with learning experiences for everyone who supports literacy learning both in and outside the school, but if you’re an instructional leader searching for the maximum learning experience, you’ll also want to take advantage of the offerings from NCTE’s Conference on English Leadership (CEL).
