LA English teachers attend convention

-A A +A

Through a grant from the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation, four Los Alamos High School English teachers were able to attend the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE) Annual Convention recently in Boston.
As representatives of the high school English department, Maria Thibodeau, Whitney Pomeroy, Elizabeth Radcliffe and Janet Newton cumulatively participated in close to 50 sessions on a wide range of current topics in English education.
The topics included round tables on implementation of the new Common Core standards as they relate to classroom discussion, non-fiction reading and writing, argumentation, and overlooked technology opportunities.
The NCTE, as the primary professional organization for English teachers, drew together more than 5000 educators and teacher-leaders to discuss and share best practices around research-based and classroom-tested ideas.
Those teachers who were able to attend returned energized and excited to share the ideas explored at the Convention with their classes, departments and the school district at large.
Through the generosity of its donors, the LAPS Foundation is pleased to offer Professional Development grants to LAPS teachers at every grade level.
