A Vision for the Future: Practices Designed for Success
Chaired by Joe Pizzo and Denise Weintraut
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2019
Kenneth R. Olson Middle School, Tabernacle, NJ
As usual, we will have 3 dynamic sessions with presentations from a wide range of teacher educators sharing best practices. You will also hear from keynote speaker, Dr. Kristen Turner (more details below).
And new this year: Join us for an optional authors’ breakfast at 8am. Start the day off right with breakfast with over 20 authors!
What is the future of literacy instruction? Whether in our classrooms, online, or with new AI technology on the horizon, change is inevitable, and we must prepare ourselves for the future.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Kristen Hawley Turner (@teachkht) – professor and director of teacher education at Drew University in New Jersey. Her research focuses on the intersections between technology and literacy, and she works with teachers across content areas to implement effective literacy instruction and to incorporate technology in meaningful ways. She is the co-author of Connected Reading: Teaching Adolescent Readers in a Digital World (the focus of our Summer Book Study Slow Chat starting August 5th!) and Argument in the Real World: Teaching Students to Read and Write Digital Texts. She is also the founder and director of the Drew Writing Project and Digital Literacies Collaborative.
Educators at any level and at any phase of their career, including pre-service teachers, are encouraged to attend.
The conference is an affordable professional development opportunity. Conference registration includes lunch and an NJCTE membership. A separate Authors Breakfast featuring 20+ writers, 8am-9am, is planned for an additional charge (discounted with conference registration).
