Begin planning today for the 2012 Annual NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English) Convention in Las Vegas, November 15-18. We are now accepting program proposals for “Dream, Connect, Ignite!”
Dream • Connect • Ignite!
Call for Program Proposals:
My favorite of Leila Christenbury’s Centennial Blasts from the Past: In 1977 former NCTE Executive Director J. N. Hook proposed an NCTE Commission on Dreams, urging the Council to consider the challenges of the future. The members of this Commission should be recognized for their vision, imagination, ability to look forward, and affirmative thinking and, he felt, should probably include a poet. Would our education landscape be different if this Commission had been created?
