Ms. Green at NCTE 2018

I am thrilled to be presenting three different times at NCTE (National Council for Teachers of English) in Houston this weekend. You can find me…

Saturday, November 17th

  • Text Selection and Reading: Integrated Approaches to Developing Student Voice, 8:00am-9:15am, 350 D
    • I’ll be presenting alongside four other educators to talk about the work my fifth graders and I did surrounding dominant and counter narratives, and the ways in which we brought counter narratives out of the margins and into the forefront of our curriculum.
    • you can access my Google Slides here
    • additional resources:
  • “What Will We Do?”: Enactment of Critical Pedagogy in the Elementary Classroom, 11:00am-12:15am, 360 E
    • Facilitated by Saba Vlach, I’ll be presenting alongside three other Austin teachers and Dr. Keffrelyn Brown to discuss the ways in which we capitalize upon Humanizing Sociocultural Knowledge (HSCK) in our classrooms. Specifically, I’ll be discussing the framework of “peacekeepers vs. peacemakers,” and how we refer back to this framework and build upon it all year through several avenues, including a study on The Revolution of Evelyn Serrano, our study of the activism of the Parkland survivors, and capstone projects centered on student agency in the community.
    • presentation hand out
    • additional resources:
  • Newsela Literacy Meet Up & Happy Hour, 6:00-8:00 pm, Around the Corner Coffee & Cocktails
    • Come get a free drink and a bite to eat and get to know other Newsela educators! We will be having a short panel presentation from 7:00-7:30. RSVP here.
