We are in the beginning stages of revamping our program for the spring, but please put the event your calendars.
Details: the event will be held at the conference facility in Glenwood, MN; $35 per person (really, it’s true) or $100 for three from the same district; lunch and snacks are included.
The intent of the event is to bring excellent discussion, ideas, and presentations to teachers in our Central Minnesota area for a reasonable price and at a convenient location.
Would you like a free registration? About 20 more 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 is free from a day job right now, and would love to see what’s going on and find out how MCTE can help you. 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.
