About the Michigan Council of Teachers of English

Founded in 1924, the Michigan Council of Teachers of English (MCTE) is an organization for K-16 English language arts teachers and English educators in Michigan. MCTE provides professional development for English language arts teachers and English education professors throughout the state. Our goals are to disseminate current English education scholarship and assist English language arts teachers as they make decisions about pedagogical practices, student populations, and teaching philosophies.

Michigan Council of Teachers of English

2016 Fall Conference:
Choose Learning:
The Preservation of
Life, Liberty, and Literacy for All

Though dystopian novels have been popular lately, they need not represent our classrooms. With kindergarteners doing worksheets and eleventh graders spending hours in ACT & SAT prep, it can be easy to lose sight of that.

Join us on Friday, October 7, 2016, at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing, Michigan, to be inspired; to see the power of words; to be reminded of America’s ideals of life, liberty, and the role of literacy in both; to help spread the word that freedom should apply to our students and teachers too. Choice matters because reading, writing, and making all matter too.

Nancie Atwell, winner of the first Global Teacher Prize and author of the profession-changing book In the Middle, will be our keynote speaker.
Casey Rocheteau, winner of the first Write A House campaign in Detroit and author of several poetry collections, will be our luncheon speaker.

Save the date because literacy saves lives. Session proposal information
is available here, and we invite you to contribute your insights to the conference.

Registration is now open.  Click here to register.

MCTE is a non-profit, volunteer organization.

Our goal is to promote best-practice teaching in the English Language Arts.
