Theme: "Create Connections"
October 24-25, 2024 @ Mandan Public Library, Mandan, ND
With a shortened conference this year, we have a limited number of keynote and breakout sessions available. We promise if we can't fit you in, we'll keep your name on our potential speakers list. Thanks for sharing your proposal with us!
Please tailor your proposal to the following categories:
AI: In an age of AI, why do we teach writing, and how can AI impact how we teach and assess writing? What lesson plans can you share that incorporate, counter and/or evaluate AI writing?
ND ELA Standards: In light of the new ND State ELA standards, what guidance can you offer teachers in terms of shifts, seeing, and using the standards to guide instruction?
Playing games: How can teachers develop a sense of wonder and play in the classroom? How can play, creativity and rigor go hand-in-hand?
Critical thinking: How can ELA teachers help students develop critical thinking skills to problem solve and evaluate propaganda?
Reading / Writing Connections: Share your best practices from analysis and beyond! How do you connect reading and writing? Share your ideas and let us experience your lessons.
