Please join us at our 2014 Fall Conference: 'Standards and Dreams'

How do we address standards while also reaching toward purpose and meaning in English language arts?

Saturday, October 11 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM College Of Saint Elizabeth (Convent Station, NJ), Annunciation Center

We are pleased to feature as our session leader Dana Maloney. Dana has been a classroom English teacher for more than 25 years.  She taught for 3 years at Saint Vincent Academy and has taught at Tenafly High School for the past 23 years.  She was a 2012 recipient of both the Princeton University Secondary Teaching Award and the James Moffett Award for Classroom Research. She is the editor of the New Jersey English Journal and serves on the Advisory Committee of the NCTE Achievement Awards in Writing.


Dana's session will engage attendees in a variety of activities to consider how teachers can address the standards AND reach beyond the standards.  Participants will deepen their understanding of the Common Core State Standards, consider how to implement the standards within engaging curriculum, and plan for balance between dreams and standards.
