Events - National Council of Teachers of English


November 21-24 in Boston, Massachusetts

“When we teach our students, it is far more than teaching for that moment and far more than teaching a particular skill in isolation.

When we teach our students, the larger, more far-reaching purpose is for our scholars to learn to use the lessons from the classroom to transform their own lives and the lives of others.”

Tonya B. Perry – 2024 Program Chair | NCTE President-Elect

Join the conversation with Hanif Abdurraqib, author, poet, and cultural critic. He’ll explore his lifelong love of the game and what it means to make it, who we think deserves success, the tension between excellence and expectation, and the very notion of role models, all of which he expertly weaves together with intimate, personal storytelling.

Attendees will have the opportunity to obtain a free digital copy of the new book, There’s Always This Year: On Basketball and Ascension, courtesy of the publisher.
