Middle Level Section Slow Chat - National Council of Teachers of English


In March, April, August, September, October, and November, we will use Padlet to post a prompt each month related to trends and issues in middle level ELA. The Padlet will be open for responses in written, pictorial, video, and audio formats. It will also have options for comments and likes. We envision this slow chat as a forum for sharing knowledge, encouraging innovation, and co-constructing our middle level section community. We invite your participation!

April 2023 question: How have you studied, explored, created, and/or celebrated poetry in your middle level ELA classroom this month?

For April, we have an additional question that you can respond to on Padlet to inform upcoming programming for middle level NCTE members!

What titles are on your professional reading list? Please share titles you are reading or hope to read soon that might (a) strengthen and encourage us as middle level educators practicing in a difficult context and/or (b) strengthen our community in the middle level section.
