Call for Proposals
Writing with Youth: Inside and Outside the Classroom

The Consortium of Northeast National Writing Project Sites currently seeks proposals for our first-ever regional conference. Young writers need opportunities to write regularly, wherever they are: in public spaces, with art, through civic engagement, as researchers, with digital tools, across disciplines, and during after school and summer programs. To celebrate teachers teaching teachers about what works and why, we ask:

- How are students writing in and out of your school?
- What innovations in writing instruction lead to promising student writing?
-What's exciting at your National Writing Project site that others need to hear about?

Types of sessions (All sessions will be 90 minutes long):

Teacher/Practices/Demonstrations/Workshops: In this format, presenters model and share effective writing instruction practices that have led to student achievement and success, in or out of school.

Ignite: In this format, a group of presenters discuss individual work for five minutes each (20 auto-advance slides), followed by breakout conversations that provide more detail and context of the work.

Showcase: In this format, numerous presenters will offer diverse perspectives on a topic, theme or project, allowing attendees to move about a room to learn collectively. (Individual or group proposals accepted).

Please fill in all of the required information, otherwise your proposal may not be accepted. Once you begin your application, you have two weeks to complete the form. This form allows you to save and return to your application. Read each section carefully and fill in the information as clearly as possible. You will be notified by email if your workshop proposal is accepted.

Proposals will be accepted through end of day on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2019.

In the event you are selected, you will be invited to participate in a coaching session at Lehman College prior to the Conference.
