MEANYC Workshop Proposals for 2019-2020
We are in the process of beginning to plan workshops for the 2019-2020 school year. We are looking to members, and our NYC educational community, to submit proposals to present next year. Since we are a very diverse district, it is important that we share best practices, strategies, and approaches that are working in our classrooms with one another. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for next year, please fill out our survey: Workshop Proposal Application. We especially are seeking workshops focused on English as a New Language (ENL). Those of us who need CTLE credits are required by the state to obtain 15 hours focused on ENL.
