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

NEATE invites teachers and graduate students at all levels of education to join us 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.

The date to submit a proposal for the 2018 Fall Conference has passed.  Check back early in 2019 for the call for proposals for our 2019 Fall Conference.  In the meantime, you can check out some work from this year's presenters:  

Alexandria Peary’s new book, Prolific Moment: Theory and Practice of Mindfulness for Writing (Routledge 2018), offers strategies to decrease students’ writing apprehension through mindful awareness or attention to the present during the writing process.  

Justin Stygles currently writes for the ILAToday blog and occasionally Choice Literacy.  His current work is with Corwin Literacy, slated for a 2019 release.  Justin's work comes from the integration of affect theory and reader interaction with text throughout reading reading development, particularly ages 8-14. Here is a link to a blog post.
