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
