ACE Presenting at the 2017 NCTE Annual Convention

May 24, 2017 Les Lynn New Projects, News

Argument-Centered Education was invited to present at the 2017 Annual Convention of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), and we will be presenting as part of a panel on close reading, literacy instruction, and argumentation.  The presentation will take place on Sunday, November 19th, at 12:45pm, in the convention center in St. Louis, Missouri.

We will take this opportunity to introduce to a wider audience a method that we have designed to enable students to apply close reading techniques to the harvesting and gathering of interpretive evidence, leading to the formulation of refined and nuanced interpretive arguments about texts. 

NCTE Convention Program Chair Dr. Jocelyn Chadwick graciously shared this comment with us:

NCTE 2017 is thrilled that Argument-Centered Education (ACE) will be presenting on a panel at this year’s annual conference. Embracing the 2017 convention theme, “Teaching Our Students Today, Tomorrow, Forever: Recapturing Our Voices, Our Agency, Our Mission,” ACE’s presentation focuses on using argumentation in literacy instruction that sustains and informs our students in their critical reading and writing through college, career, and daily living.

We hope to see some of you in St. Louis and, if you’re available, at our presentation on Sunday the 19th.  We look forward to the professional learning and collegial conversations that are the hallmark of this singular event.
