Please join us at the Language Collaborative Business Meeting.
The mission of NCTE's Language Collaborative is to examine policies and pedagogical practices related to language variation and students' right to their own language, and to explore and raise awareness about how people learn language, learn about language, and learn through language.
During the business meeting, we will a) discuss the activities of the collaborative during the past year, b) set goals for 2014-2015, c) select a Director-Elect, and d) outline session proposals for 2015.
