ECEA at NCTE 2009

It is hard to believe that the NCTE Annual Convention is just around the corner. The Early Childhood Education Assembly has certainly come a long way in a very short period of time. Having recently gained Assembly status, we are especially excited to catch up with all of you at the convention, and talk with you about ways of drawing attention to our early childhood group. Over the past several months the ECEA Board of Directors Officers, has been busy putting together sessions that focus on early childhood education. At the end of this post we will list various sessions to be held on the Day of ECE at the NCTE convention as well as share with you the ECE workshop we are sponsoring as a post convention event.

Please check back regularly for any updates.

Also, for your convenience in the side bar to the right of this post, you will find information regarding membership in the Early Childhood Education Assembly. We need your support so please share this site with your colleagues, follow us on Twitter, friend us on Facebook and help us to spread the word about our assembly.

We look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia!
