We invite you to propose a breakout session for the upcoming Fall 2014 UCTE Conference. Teacher-led breakout sessions are a vital part of our conferences every year, and we want to hear your ideas for teaching!
Proposals are due on September 30, 2014. Participants will be notifed by October 14 or sooner.
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.
The conference will be held at the Jordan Commons Megaplex conference center, located close to I-15 and Trax transportation options. Registration will be open soon, and we will, of course, have more details posted soon. If you want to be informed of upcoming events and details, please add your email address to our mailing list!
