November 17-20 in Anaheim

The 2022 NCTE Annual Convention will mark the first Annual Convention where we come out of the darkness, together in person to collectively pursue the light as we emerge from the global pandemic. The theme of pursuing the light came from part of a serigraph series from Sister Mary Corita Kent that shared messages of hope, peace, and social justice amid poverty, racism, and war. As literacy and language arts teachers, teacher educators, and researchers, we can share the ways our individual and collective pursuit of light assisted and continues to assist us in imagining a new story with bright stops and new sueños (dreams) for ourselves, our students, and our communities.

Back by popular demand! This new series addresses the classroom application of mindful writing, in middle school through college.

Mindful writing is the nonjudgmental observation of the ever-changing present to find perspective on internalized critics, better manage our preconceptions, and gain access to ongoing content.




The NCTE Video Library—available to all NCTE members—is home to more than 100 recordings for our members’ use, ranging from author and book conversations, to professional learning sessions, to Member Gatherings on a wide range of topics, and much more.
