Fall 2022 Conference: Advocacy: Voice and Access
Saturday, November 5, 2022
Fully Virtual Conference on ZOOM*

*Although we will be able to offer some technical support, please be prepared to deliver your presentation via Zoom.

The CALL FOR PROPOSALS is open until SEPTEMBER 15, 2022. All proposals must be received by September 15.

With a theme of "Advocacy: Voice and Access" we hope for presentations that illustrate ways that teachers can use their English language teaching to put the voices of ELLs at the front of community conversations; support ELLs' development of their own personal stories; facilitate ELLs' access to the broadest community services, resources, and engagement.

Presentations relating to our conference theme and TOPICS OF INTEREST to our audience include, but are not limited to:  representation in textbooks and fiction,  Eurocentric pedagogies and assessments, multilingualism, heritage languages, equity pedagogy, trauma-informed practice, refugee concerns, immigration policy as it pertains to our students, critical pedagogies, and intersectionality.

Other topics will be considered including: K-12 education, young learners, teaching ELL adults, higher education and academic English, literacy, multi-literacies, teacher training, L2 teacher & learner identity, content-based instruction, asset-based instruction, co-teaching, project-based learning, technology in English teaching, approaches to assessment, motivational strategies and more!

Here are some tips for writing a successful proposal:

* Preference will be given to topics relating to our conference theme.
* Think of your target audience, they are all in the ELL field, provide a brief overview and then dive right in!
* Include ideas or activities in your proposal that teachers can immediately put to use in their classrooms.
* Integrate possible classroom applications if your proposal is more of a conceptual/theoretical presentation.
* Address the wide age group that ELL teachers work with in the classrooms.
* Provide handouts for the presentation or an email address to contact the presenter.
* Allow time in the presentation for a debrief/reflection period if there is a group activity.
