Teachers Act Up!

Thoughts on Teaching, Language, and Social Change from Melisa "Misha" Cahnmann-Taylor

I have been invited to speak at the Fall 2012 Georgia TESOL conference, October 26-27 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta.  The conference theme is “Great Expectations” and I hope to have these expectations of myself as I present ways I’ve used theatre with TESOL & Bilingual educators in the effort to “Act Up!” for social change! We’re still figuring out the details of when I’ll speak–I hope these details will soon be posted.  Meantime, I hope to see some of you at GA TESOL this coming fall!

Also, this fall another wonderful conference opportunity: The University of South Carolina is pleased to announce the Third Annual Latino Children’s and Young Adult Literature and Literacies Conference to be held at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. The conference, sponsored by the College of Education, is designed for individuals interested in celebrating Latino children’s literature and literacies in their schools, libraries, literacy organizations, homes, and community-based sites of learning. Featuring internationally-acclaimed scholars Dr. Donaldo Macedo and Dr. Augustine Romero and award-winning Latina author/illustrator, Maya Christina Gonzalez, the conference is truly a unique experience.  The call for proposals is open.  Another great fall learning opportunity!
