Correll Lecture on 21st Century English Language Arts Teaching

The first speaker for the University of Maine Correll Presidential Lecture Series will be Ernest Morrell, director of the Institute for Urban and Minority Education at Teachers College. He’ll speak March 26 about English language arts instruction.

In a multimodal, interactive session, Morrell, who also is vice president of the National Council of Teachers of English, will outline a core set of principles for culturally relevant and academically rigorous 21st century English language arts instruction from 4:30-5:45 p.m. in the Wells Conference Center. The public is invited to the free event. The talk, “Powerful English Language Arts Teaching in the 21st Century Classroom,” will feature examples of new teaching pedagogies and explain how incorporating new literacies into classroom instruction serves to increase student engagement and academic literacy development. He’ll also outline principles of powerful teaching through engagement, affirmation, discipline, inspiration, purpose and love.

Additional information is available on the UMaine College of Education and Human Development website.
