We had an enthusiastic but small response, and made the difficult decision of rescheduling this event. At our board meeting on 10/10, the board will choose a spring, 2016 date and determine other details. Information will be provided as soon as possible.
Refunds will be given immediately.
Many apologies for the inconvenience. We wanted to make the best out of our incredible line-up of presenters and speakers–and provide you with the best networking opportunities. STAY TUNED.
For your information, we will stick as closely as possible to the already-awesomely planned schedule as noted:
Would you like a free registration? About 100 volunteers are needed to answer questions, give directions, monitor session rooms, assist in the registration booth and the exhibit hall, and take event tickets. In return for 8 volunteer hours, you will receive a free registration. To sign up, fill out a volunteer form. These registrations are on a first-come, first serve basis, so sign up today! Stay tuned to this site for convention updates.
To get out the word for the Workshop a Go-G0 event, regional rep./event planner John Zdrazil, MDE representative Charon Tierney, and MCTE president Sherri Larson visited several schools. What a great time! Sherri was inspired by the amazing teaching teams in Hibbing, Kerkhoven, Minnewaska, Litchfield, Willmar, and Benson…and will continue her tour just to see what’s going on and find out how MCTE can help you. She’s free from a day job now, and is excited to get back on the road. If you want a visit to your ELA department, drop her an email at email@example.com. (Plus, she’ll bring snacks.)
Our spring conference was April 30-May 1. Thanks to members who provided the bulk of the program through breakout sessions. Use this link to the conference wiki to get resources.
Because the NCTE conference is in Minneapolis in November, we will not have a two-day spring conference in 2016. Instead, we’ll have a Central Minnesota one-day workshop in September and move the traditional metro-area one-day fall workshop event to the spring.
