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.

Join MCTE at this co-sponsored event with Oakland Schools
Issues of race and racism are deeply embedded in American letters and life. Schools are at the forefront of these concerns, and race comes up explicitly in a literacy class through readings both old and new, from Huck Finn to Between the World and Me. The topic of race isn’t easy to cover, but that doesn’t mean we should avoid it.
Join Michigan Council of Teachers of English and Oakland Schools on May 4th as we invite Dr. Ernest Morrell and Dr. Laura Jimenez to inform our thinking on one of the most critically important topics of our time. SCECHs will be available pending approval.
