The Oregon Council of Teachers of English is pleased to announce their 2021 Spring Virtual Conference "Oregon's Untold Stories."

They have arranged a series of four events in April. All of which will take place via Zoom from 4:30 - 5:30 pm PDT and will be recorded.

During the Speaker Series, you'll hear from representatives of Indigenous tribes, Japanese American internment, women's fight for suffrage, and the Oregon Jewish Holocaust Museum and Cultural Center

Session Descriptions can be found here.

We encourage everyone to attend.

One PDU per event attended is available.

The series is FREE for members and $25 for nonmembers, which includes a year of OCTE membership.

Please join our colleagues at Classroom Law Project in supporting The Civics Education Act, a bill before the Oregon Legislature (HB2299/SB513) that will ensure that every Oregon high school student will receive one semester of civics education.

We understand the importance of helping students acquire the knowledge and skills they will need to realize their potential as successful and productive members of our society. Education in Oregon must empower students to be well-informed, active members of their communities, and provide a meaningful opportunity to participate in our democracy to make positive changes in the world around us. We are not yet effectively providing those tools and we need your support.
