On Nov. 19, faculty and students of the Dreeben School of Education attended the National Council of Teachers of English Annual Convention in St. Louis, Missouri.
The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) is devoted to improving the teaching and learning of English and the language arts at all levels of education. It is the premier national professional organization for English language arts teachers of all grade levels.
Students pursuing English majors with Education minors, Kelly Moore, Sarah Peregory, Janelle Harwell and Ashley Kowalczyk, gave roundtable presentations on The Future Is Now: Exploring 21st-Century Teaching Ideas with the Next Generation of English Teachers.
Participants were given the opportunity to present their innovative teaching ideas and research to other preservice teachers and university faculty in a supportive environment while being allowed to explore the visions of their peers from across the country.
“This is an amazing opportunity for our students to see the profession of teaching, and know that they are not alone in this important work. At this convention, thousands of English language arts teachers come together to think deeply about how best to teach students. It’s also an opportunity to meet the authors of favorite books and scholars they cited in their research”, said Dr. Ann D. David.
