Connecting Communities Through the Classroom
The Colorado Language Arts Society is a state affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English, a professional association of educators in English studies, Literacy, and Language Arts. 

CLAS is a sponsor of the Blue Spruce Book Award and the Colorado Teen Literature Conference.

Did you attend the 2017 Regional Fall Conference? An e-mail was sent at the end of the conference with a link to the feedback form. Thanks to Rick Brennan for taking photos during the event -- these are viewable at 2017 CLAS Conference Photos -- and to everyone that took a Saturday to join us for the conference.

Our next Regional Fall Conference is October 6, 2018, with keynotes by teacher and author Penny Kittle, poet Camille Dungy, and 2015 National Teacher of the Year Shanna Peeples at the Tivoli Student Union in Denver. The conference is co-sponsored by the NCTE Student Affiliate at Metropolitan State University of Denver.

We are accepting session proposals through June 29, 2018. Please see the conference page for details.

Registration is $65 for pre-service and first-year teachers, and $98 for all other attendees. The cost includes a catered brown-bag lunch and one year's membership in Colorado Language Arts Society. Registration will open in early 2018 on Eventbrite.
