In this episode, teacher panelists Amy Fleming, Gretchen Taylor, Beth Shaum, and Alex Corbitt sit down with Will Fassbender to reflect on their experiences at the 2018 NCTE Annual Convention in Houston, Texas. The theme for this year was Raising Student Voice: Speaking Out for Equity and Justice, a message that seemed to be timely and well-received by conference presenters and attendees. They talk about how Convention has changed them as teachers, readers, and writers, advice they have for teachers who are looking forward to attending Convention 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland, as well as the books they picked up in Houston that they are excited to read and share with their students.
