The Kansas Association of Teachers of English (KATE) is the KS affiliate for the National Council of Teachers of English. We are dedicated to discovering and sharing the best teaching practices that enhance our students' reading and writing skills.
We are excited to announce the two keynote speakers for the 2013 KATE Annual Conference, "Core Coalescence: Deep Understanding in a World of Bytes, Texts, and Tweets."
Our opening session keynote speaker will be Kathleen Blake-Yancey. Kathleen is a former NCTE President, and is currently the Kellogg W. Hunt Professor of English and Director of the Graduate Program in Rhetoric and Composition at Florida State University. Her research and consulting work focus on composition studies -- especially print and electronic portfolios -- and the intersections of culture, literacy and technologies. She has authored, edited, or co-edited eleven scholarly books and two textbooks as well as over 65 articles and book chapters, including her latest volume, Electronic Portfolios 2.0.
Take note of the opportunity for monetary recognition for outstanding presentations. Information is included on the proposal form, or you may contact Suzy Oertel at the email addresses listed above for more information.
We look forward to hearing from you!
