Join the New York City Writing Project for our

Teachers in the Round Conference

Sometimes you just need a fresh teaching idea.

Through a roundtable format of presentation and open discussion, you will be able to explore topics such as writing for social justice, learning in online spaces, and celebrating student voice. Come see how you can turn ideas into a practical reality for your classroom.

Our keynote speaker for the conference will be Nicole Mirra, Assistant Professor of Urban Teacher Education at Rutgers University. Her recent publication Educating for Empathy: Literacy Learning and Civic Engagement (Teachers College Press 2018) offers a compelling framework for thinking about literacy education in a politically polarized world.
