NCTE Reminder

I will be attending the NCTE Annual Convention next week.

And, I will be on a panel about blogging and the kidlitosphere. Also on the panel: Mary Lee from A Year of Reading, Jen Robinson from Jen Robinson's Book Page, and Susan T. from Chicken Spaghetti.

Session: I.12 - 1:15 pm to 2:30 pm 11/17/2007
Format: Panel
Room: Javits Convention Center
Topic: Multi-modal Literacy
Level(s): Elementary (K-5)
Title: WELCOME TO THE KIDLITOSPHERE: READING, REVIEWING, AND BLOGGING ABOUT CHILDREN'S LITERATURE Children's literature blogs are a fabulous digital resource for all who are interested in children's books. In this session, four bloggers will share how blogs and blogging enhance their work with children and their knowledge of children's literature. There will be time for questions, and handouts with web links and booklists will be provided.

I have never been to NCTE before, so I'm excited! And, all my prep has been for the panel presentation; I haven't glanced at anything else going on at the Convention. So, what do you recommend I do? Any suggestions?

And let me know if you'll be there!

Oh, I hope you don't mind that I 'stole' your comments disclaimer for my personal blog's 'about' page. I linked back to you & gave you credit for it. You just said it so well. :)

Thanks for posting this, Liz! I need to learn about other presentations to see also. The Sex in YA lit certainly sounds interesting.

Wow, I hope you're not scheduled at the same time as the sex session ...

Have a great time. I'm sure you'll do us all proud. And of course remember to blog about it so I can attend vicariously.

I can't make it, but I think my co-writer may be there. Maybe you can inspire him to finally write something on his empty blog!

Darn. I'm going to be there only Monday and Tuesday. I'd like to have heard your presentation and the one on sex in YA lit.
