Faces of Advocacy

2016 NCTE Annual Convention

November 17-20, 2016
Workshops: November 17, 20-22

When we hear the word "advocacy" in connection to our profession, every one of us—teachers, instructors, professors, researchers, writers—has a different definition of what that means. There are people who might think that this only has to do with talking to senators and representatives in government about affecting changes on a state or national level. While this is certainly a part of advocacy, it is not the only piece of advocacy that this Convention wishes to explore.
