Contact Rebecca Yoder, Conference Chair, at [email protected] Conference Theme: No More Faking: Authentic Literacy, Meaningful Learning Students see reading and writing as temporary answers to temporary problems, necessary only for tests or classes. Students mechanically enter classes, take notes, practice skills, and complete assignments they will discard and never remember. Students fake their way through assignments, tests, tasks - and promptly forget the literacy skills they practiced. Reading and writing, like many other aspects of their lives, is just something else they can leave behind. We, their teachers, know reading and writing skills cannot be left behind. Literacy is required for life, and we know that our students need authentic literacy experiences to make reading and writing real - and meaningful - for each student. Our 2019 conference theme is Authentic Literacy, Meaningful Learning. It is time to focus on how to show students that reading and writing experiences mean something beyond the score at the top of the page and a letter in the grade book. Join us at SCCTE along with Donalyn Miller and Berit Gordon for a great conference where you can recharge, discuss, learn, and reflect. We hope to see you there!
