Mr. Lavold Will Be Speaking at a National Convention
The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) is pleased to announce that Christopher Lavold will be speaking at the NCTE Annual 2014 Convention in Washington, D.C.
Lavold, of Mauston, Wisconsin, will present as a member of the panel, "FOLGER FUNDAMENTALS-PART 1: YOU AND YOUR STUDENTS MEET SHAKESPEARE'S LANGUAGE HEAD-ON." The participants’ description of the panel reads:
This session will demonstrate several specific activities and strategies to unlock and demystify the thorniest aspect of teaching Shakespeare-his language-and get you and your students right inside these complex texts. Both beginning teachers and veteran teachers will benefit from these basic methods, though this should be required for first-time or nervous teachers of Shakespeare.
The session will be held from 9:30 AM to 10:45 AM on Friday, November 21, 2014.
Each year, the NCTE Annual Convention draws thousands of elementary and secondary educators, college faculty, administrators, and other educational professionals from around the world to participate in four days of professional learning programming. NCTE convention attendees hear presentations from award-winning speakers, attend thought-provoking sessions, share best practices, and test the latest teaching materials. The NCTE Annual 2014 Convention will be held November 20-23, 2014 at the Gaylord National Resort in Washington, D.C.
The National Council of Teachers of English (http://www.ncte.org), with 35,000 individual and institutional members worldwide, is dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of English and the language arts at all levels of education.
