NCTE 2015

Later this week I'll be attending the National Council of Teachers of English Annual Convention in Minneapolis. I've never been to NCTE before, so I'm really looking forward to it. I'll be there from Thursday until Saturday, but Friday is my big day for events. Here's where I'll be:

Friday, November 20

11:00-12:15 Convention Center Room 103: I'll be presenting with my editor, Katie Cunningham, as part of the "Guiding Writers: Bringing the Author/Editor Relationship to the Classroom" roundtable.

Session Description: Attend this roundtable session to discover how the editor/author relationship can be applied to the teacher/student dynamic to improve the art of writing instruction. You will hear from four of the author/editor pairs learning insights, methods, techniques, tips, and strategies for guiding student writers in your classroom.

4:00-5:00 signing Growing Up Pedro at the Candlewick Booth, #727-729

Hope to see you there!
