CFP: Teacher to Teacher Event at the 2020 Milwaukee CCC Convention

In the spirit of the CCCC 2020 call for proposals, “Considering Our Commonplaces,” we invite educators to reconsider commonplaces by bringing their successes, challenges, and instructive failures as the 2020 Teacher to Teacher event. The CCCC call notes, “commonplaces often entail ideas about learners and learning—what learners do and need, how learning happens, and on what grounds learning may be refused.” Further, it asks us to explore “[W]hat [we] know, and how do [we] know it? What will it take for [us] to learn more, or learn differently?” Teacher to Teacher (T2T) invites colleagues to engage each other as literacy educators, to share examples of efforts that have worked particularly well as well as solicit feedback on approaches that we imagined would be successful but that were not. We invite proposals for table presentations that (re)discover commonplaces of writing pedagogy through the exchange of teaching ideas and accounts of what happens in the classroom: the values we share and mobilize us and the pedagogical policies and practices that, for a range of reasons, fell short.
