Leyton Schnellert and Faye Brownlie at BCTELA
BC Teachers of English Language Arts, a BCTF Provincial Specialist Association, is hosting their annual conference October 20-22, 2011. The theme, Teachers and Students Leading Literate Lives, is designed for teachers working at all grade levels. Sessions will focus on engaging ways to teach language arts, Aboriginal literature and perspectives, social justice, technology, and multi-modal learning. This fall’s conference is a unique opportunity to attend sessions and hear the work of colleagues, authors and researchers that are rarely together.
The three day event will be held at Johnson Heights Secondary School in Surrey, BC. At Thursday evening’s wine & cheese, P&M author, Faye Brownlie, will engage and inspire you. Saturday’s institutes, featuring P&M author Leyton Schnellert, will provide you an opportunity to delve deeply into a single theme: Multiple Pathways to Leading Literate Lives, Students and Teachers Becoming Culturally Literate or How New Literacies Can Help Students and Teachers Lead More Literate Lives.
