NATE’s annual conference is going to be a stoatir this year as the Association hosts the International Federation for the Teaching of English. Teachers of English from all across the world will gather in Birmingham to share research, ideas and practice (including Leanne Welsh and Raymond Soltysek from SATE on responding to literature).
The conference is always inspirational: you can read some reactions to it in earlier posts to this blog, and on SATE’s previous blogsite here. It never fails to enthuse, and the opportunities to meet with and chat with (and drink with) other teachers are not to be missed.
Sign up for conference here. Bear in mind that because of the benefits of the conference, it is always possible that your school or authority will cover at least part of the cost of attending and cover for your classes; if you don’t ask, you won’t get!
And to help with travel costs, you can join the SATE bus! We’ll be taking a people carrier all the way to Birmingham and back, leaving on the afternoon of Thursday 21st and returning on the 24th of June. The cost of sharing the transport hire and petrol is significantly less than a return train journey, taxis, etc., and the company isn’t bad either!
