This event is in the past.
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.
