Imagining, Discovering, & Cultivating Curiosity


Calling all North Country educators!

Come & share your passion for teaching: a phenomenal lesson, trick(s) of the trade, and teaching stories with your colleagues! Who? Special Education, English Language Arts, Music, Math, Science, Librarians, Drama, Social Studies, Art, Foreign Language….!


The Journey into Literacy conference committee seeks educators to present at the JIL 2019 conference. The conference will be held on October 24 & 25, 2019. This year’s theme is Imagining, Discovering, and Cultivating Curiosity. We will celebrate the richness and versatility of nonfiction. The genre of nonfiction is expanding past traditional boundaries to actively cultivate curiosity and imagination. We want this limit-defying genre to inspire students to read and write in new ways that contemplate situations and places in the world that are mysterious, absurd, intriguing, and downright fascinating. Our featured speakers will reinvigorate our passion for teaching and will unlock the doors of nonfiction. Our fall 2019 conference headliners are Timothy Walker, Steve Sheinkin, Susan Roth, and Elizabeth Zunon. Together these four will engage conference attendees in the art of language, expression, and inquiry as they remind us of our everyday super powers.

Please submit a proposal using online form below by JUNE 15 (extended)

       Notifications of acceptance/decline will be sent via email by July 15th.
