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.

Register NOW for our annual Fall Conference!!!
The learning communities we create in our classrooms and with our colleagues grow increasingly more important as the world around us grows more chaotic. As teachers, we have power. We set the tone when we choose to present information in a way that is engaging, when we make the choice to lead students to knowledge and skill through inquiry, and when we inspire our students to make their own well-thought out and educated choices about their lives.
MCTE would like you to join our learning community on Friday, October 20, 2017 for the annual Fall Conference,"Building Community with Curiosity, Creativity, and Joy," We have a wonderful group of educators from across Michigan with engaging presentations on the hottest topics in teaching language arts today. Come and be inspired! To register for the Fall Conference, click here. To preview the sessions available at our conference, click here.
