Literacy and Peer Learning: NCTE Conference 2018

I need registration for the NCTE Conference in Houston in November 2018.

My Students

I teach Special Education ESL and Wilson Language reading instruction classes at Boston's public high school that serves only recent teen immigrants.

My students come from more than 40 different countries and speak more than 10 different languages.

They are eager to learn in their country and are engaged in improving their reading in English. With the supports of the reading program, many students express that "English finally makes sense" and that they have the confidence to engage with challenging texts.

My Project

As a literacy and special education teacher, I am always looking for new strategies to bring to my classroom. My students have learning disabilities that can affect their memory, processing and spelling, and I am always looking for new techniques so my students can be successful.

At the NCTE Conference 2018, I will have a chance to learn from literacy experts and innovators such as the #hiphoped Chris Emdin.

I am excited to learn new executive function strategies and phonics skills to teach with my students. NCTE is the country's largest conference for literacy and English educators, and I know that this professional development will have a significant impact on my instruction and my students.
