2018 Fall Conference Call for Proposals
Speak Up! Finding and Using Our Voices in a Noisy World
October 19th and 20th, at the Holiday Inn, Mansfield, Massachusetts
Deadline for proposals is June 1, 2018.
NEATE invites teachers and graduate students at all levels of education to submit workshop proposals for our fall conference. This year’s theme, Speak Up! Finding and Using Our Voices in a Noisy World, acknowledges both the power of finding focus in a fast-paced world inundated with media messages and the importance of encouraging teachers and students to use their voices to speak up amid the noise. NEATE recognizes the importance of reflecting on how reading, writing, speaking, listening, and performing helps us all develop stamina as educated and active citizens in our world today.
We seek workshops that address the conference theme and/or fit into the following strands:
There will be three rounds of 90-minute concurrent workshops on Friday and two rounds of 90-minute concurrent workshops on Saturday. Conference participants especially appreciate interactive presentations that demonstrate strategies that can easily be adapted to the classroom.
In response to feedback from participants in previous years, we ask that workshop presenters provide some handouts and also post resources (such as classroom materials, presentation slides, etc.) on the NEATE website for future use. Presenters are encouraged (but not required) to submit articles for publication in NEATE’s journal, The Leaflet.
Presenters (including multiple presenters) are required to register for the conference, at a $25 discount, and are encouraged to participate in all conference activities.
To submit a proposal, please use the form link https://goo.gl/forms/iqOuv3a76svM5EmA2 by June 1, 2018.
