2014 NEATE Conference Passion and Practice:

Saturday, October 25, 2014
12:00am – 11:59pm

Repeats daily until 10/25/2014.

Holiday Inn, Mansfield, Massachusetts

The theme of this year’s conference is “Passion and Practice: Building a Balanced Culture of Literacy in Our Schools.” Evolutionary theory tells us that only those most adaptable to change survive. Now more than ever we are asked to evolve, to repurpose our practice to address close reading of literature and informational text, speaking and listening, research, language, and new demands in writing—argument as well as narrative and explanatory text. How do we adapt yet still follow the pilot light of our passion for words? How do we build a culture of literacy that balances passion and best practice?
