Conference Proposal SubmissionS

According to CASEL.org, social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. The Spring 2020 NJCTE conference theme, "SEL & ELA: Literacy for Life," invites educators to share their expertise in creating and sustaining social and emotional learning through the English Language Arts in their classrooms and schools.

Proposals, in either 60-minute breakout, 20-minute focused, or 5-minute SPARK (Ignite-style) format, addressing this theme will be given consideration for inclusion in the conference program.

Please complete the form by January 6, 2020 to submit a proposal for consideration as part of the NJCTE Spring 2020 Conference to be held on March 28, 2020 at Pascack Valley High School, in Hillsdale, NJ. Please note, as a non-profit organization of educators, NJCTE is not able to provide a stipend or reimburse expenses to selected presenters. All presenters are also expected to become members of NJCTE.
