Powered UP! is the conference theme, and it is the goal of the conference committee to offer an array of workshops on effective ways to energize classes, motivate students, and integrate educational technology to enhance student engagement and learning. Kate Kinsella, EdD, a teacher educator at San Francisco State University, will be the featured speaker. Dr. Kinsella is a national leader in the field of academic language and literacy whose 25-year teaching career focus has been equipping youths from diverse backgrounds with the communication, reading, and writing skills to be career and college ready. In her keynote address, titled "Disrupting Classroom Discourse: Preparing Students and Teachers for Higher Ed and Workplace Register Demands," Dr. Kinsella will provide practical ways in which teachers can expand students' command of the advanced vocabulary needed for success in their academic course work and their profession. The call for proposals and registration will be made in early November. The proposal deadline is December 31, 2014.
