FEATURED SPEAKERS:Jeff Anderson has been sharing writing strategies with teachers and students for over 25 years. Whether presenting at national conferences like NCTE, ASCD, or in classrooms or writing his books for teachers or middle grade readers, Jeff’s passion for writing and grammar inspires teachers and young writers to soar. When he’s not writing with his “revising” dogs at home near downtown San Antonio, Texas, he’s walking, talking, or doing staff development around the US (and sometimes New Zealand).

Kristine E. Brickey was born and raised in Michigan and truly loves the power of words. Teaching for almost thirty years, Brickey has an understanding of teens that allows the creation of true characters and situations that strike the hearts of her readers. Seeing her novels in the hands of others and on store shelves has only increased her passion for reading and writing. Look for future books from this author.(http://www.kristineebrickey.com/)
PLEASE NOTE:We invite practicing and pre-service teachers, teacher educators, and librarian/media specialists to submit presentation proposals that highlight the role of creativity in the language arts classroom, the power of literacy to build empathy and community, the importance of inquiry to build responsible citizenship, and any other promising practices that help students and teachers.
Preference will be given to presentations that are timely, interactive, and relevant to the teaching lives of Michigan’s early childhood, elementary, secondary, and university English Language Arts educators. Crystal Nelson will contact each proposal’s author with an email message indicating that the submitted proposal was received. The MCTE Executive Board will contact the author of each proposal in early August with a notification communicating whether or not the proposal was selected. Space is limited; unfortunately, we cannot accommodate every worthy proposal submitted.
