The success of our annual conference relies on teachers like you who come prepared to lead invigorating and inspiring breakout sessions. Please consider proposing a session, either alone or with some colleagues, to share your teaching ideas. Here are some ideas (but this is by no means an exhaustive list):

  • How do you teach literature in engaging, meaningful ways? How do you help students become better critical readers?
  • How do you empower students as writers?
  • How do you integrate technology and media in innovative ways?
  • How do you collaborate in productive ways with fellow teachers and/or administrators?

Breakout sessions typically last about 45 minutes, and we encourage all kinds of formats (workshop, panel, interactive presentation). Your proposal should include all contact information for presenters, a brief description of the proposed session, and an outline of how you’ll spend the 45 minutes with participants. Presenters are eligible for a discounted conference registration.

Click the button below to submit your proposal, and feel free to contact our conference chair if you have any questions or want some help with a proposal. Proposals are due by September 30, 2017. Notifications about acceptance are usually sent out within two weeks of the deadline.
