The Utah Council of Teachers of English publishes an annual journal, the Utah English Journal, aimed at English/Language Arts teachers in the state of Utah. We are currently accepting manuscript submissions for the 2014 issue. We welcome articles of all types that share successful ideas for teaching practice as well as other content of interest to teachers. More information can be found on this year's call for submissions. Submissions are due by August 1, 2014. For more information about the journal and to view sample articles, check out the UEJ Portal page.
We're excited to announce the 2014 Annual UCTE Conference to be held on Friday, November 7, 2014. We've been working to confirm speakers and guests for the conference, and we can announce that Cris Tovani (author of, among others, the books I Read It, but I Don't Get It and So What Do They Really Know?) will be our featured keynote speaker at next year's conference. We are pleased to also announce that we have tentatively confirmed that Gene Yuen Lang (author of the critically acclaimed graphic novel, American Born Chinese) will be speaking next year as well.
We do not yet have our venue confirmed but we plan to hold the conference in Salt Lake City. We will, of course, have more details posted in the coming months to this web site. Please check back, but if you want to be informed of upcoming events and details, please add your email address to our mailing list!
