Tracy Maurer to Speak at National Convention

The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) is pleased to announce that Tracy Maurer, of Author, will be speaking at the 2017 NCTE Annual Convention in St. Louis, Missouri.

Maurer will present as a member of the panel, "The Mighty Curriculum Power of Picture-Book Biographies." The participants’ description of the panel reads:

Writing biographies for children requires translating facts from actual lives into works that captivate readers—and complement curricula. This panel of authors discusses the writing process and elements of outstanding picture-book biographies that can enhance K-12 literacy skills, provide interdisciplinary potential, and offer engaging activities (come prepared to try one!).

The session will be held from 9:30 AM to 10:45 AM on Friday, November 17, 2017.

Each year, the NCTE Annual Convention draws thousands of elementary, middle level, 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 2017 NCTE Annual Convention will be held November 16-19 at the America’s Center Convention Complex.

The National Council of Teachers of English (, with 30,000 individual and institutional members worldwide, is dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of English and the language arts at all levels of education.
