Why does a donation to NCTE matter?

Many of us know the Council as an organization that provides thoughtful, peer-reviewed journals and books and hosts professional meetings. But there is much more to NCTE than that. NCTE provides a host of services to enrich teacher and student learning, advance research, preserve intellectual freedom, and support educator agency.

Your contributions support:

  • Anti-censorship support for schools and teachers alike
  • Continued expansion of initiatives like the African American Read-In and the National Day on Writing
  • Research funding for studies by member-scholars of provocative professional inquiries and public policy questions relevant to literacy
  • Action on pressing issues like the Council’s call for a moratorium on high-stakes testing and advocacy for more professional time devoted to teacher learning and collaboration
  • Support for the advancement of diversity in all realms of our profession
  • Powerful advocacy for Council positions and values at local, state, and national levels
  • Deep mentoring for early career teachers and scholars
  • Direct support for student members and those with employment gaps who wish to remain active in the organization
  • Ever-widening access to free professional learning resources, videos, and protocols through initiatives like ReadWriteThink
  • Celebrations of outstanding student work at all scholastic levels through NCTE awards programs
  • Recognition of outstanding teaching practice, scholarship, and writing by NCTE members
  • Awards and recognition for those who have given years of thoughtful service to their colleagues through NCTE programs and activities
  • Timely news coverage of literacy education trends and events through the INBOX e-newsletter and Council Chronicle
  • Ongoing administrative support for the work of NCTE Conferences, Affiliates, and Assemblies
