**** Presenting workshop sessions during which one shares ones own experiences
**** Attending conferences and conventions to meet, greet, hear and learn from others
This fall, I’ll be able to do both. First, I’ll giving a workshop at the Michigan Council of Teachers of English Fall Conference in Lansing, Mi. The theme this year is “Policy, Practice, and Power: Upholding Our Convictions in Demanding Times”.
In November, during Annual Convention of the National Council of Teachers of English, I have two slots on the program.
As part of the Secondary Section’s HIGH SCHOOL MATTERS, I’ll be facilitating a round table on” “DEPARTMENT CHAIRS: Learning and With and From our Teachers”.
And with the Conference on English Leadership, a round-table discussion in the Saturday morning session called, “LEADING WITH PRECISION: USING INFORMATION ABOUT STUDENTS TO FOCUS AND IMPROVE INSTRUCTION ACROSS SUBJECT AREAS: A SESSION FOR DEPARTMENT CHAIRS, LEAD TEACHERS, AND LITERACY COORDINATORS.”
My table will be discussimg strategies Department Chairs can use for “Maximizing Meetings and Maintaining Morale”.
Second, I’ll be looking forward to meeting, greeting and learning from you.
