Sarah Gross to Speak at National Convention
The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) is pleased to announce that Sarah Gross will be speaking at the 2013 NCTE Annual Convention in Boston.
Gross, of High Technology High School, New Jersey and New York Times Learning Network, New York, will present as a member of the panel, "RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES AND APPLIED TO THE CLASSICS: PAIRING FICTION AND NONFICTION, WITH HELP FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES." The participants’ description of the panel reads:
The CCSS call for the addition of high-interest literary and informational nonfiction in secondary classes. How can teachers use NF to complement literature, rather than replace it? This conversation focuses on matching literature with current events to engage students, using free online resources, like The New York Times Learning Network, to help.
The session will be held from 2:30 PM to 3:45 PM on Friday, November 22, 2013.
Each year, the NCTE Annual Convention draws thousands of elementary and secondary educators, college faculty, administrators, and other educational professionals from around the world to participate in four days of professional learning programming. NCTE convention attendees hear presentations from award-winning speakers, attend thought-provoking sessions, share best practices, and test the latest teaching materials. The 2013 NCTE Annual Convention will be held November 21-24, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.
