Hi I'm a retired English teacher with many file folders of literature lesson plans that range from middle school classic books for 10th-11th grade regular and gifted classes. I would like to give them to someone who would use what they want and share the files with new teachers. I live in Albq and can meet/and/or deliver them. Please contact me:[email protected]. If I don't hear from anyone here by October 2nd, I will try elsewhere. thanks Megan Baldrige

Silence is not an option.

The New Mexico Council for Teachers of English stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.

As a coalition of literacy educators and leaders in New Mexico, we reiterate NCTE’s statement that “denounces all forms of racial violence and brutality." We are especially outraged at the murder of George Floyd and many others, some whose names we know and others we do not.

We recognize that most schools knowingly and unknowingly perpetuate white supremacy that colonizes what we read, the ways we write, how we grade, and how we manage our classrooms.

To specifically address anti-Blackness, we recommend teaching literature with Black characters written by Black authors that open conversations about issues such as the over-policing of Black people;

We also recommend dialogue about anti-Blackness that provides space for students to understand the long trajectory of this type of racism and violence locally and nationally;

Further, we encourage listening to Black student experiences with anti-Blackness, in school assignments and as class participation, but caution against drawing out these experiences in ways that make students uncomfortable or exploit their pain.

Finally, we recommend a critical examination of how anti-Blackness permeates school settings outside of language and literature curriculum and how anti-Blackness extends to the rules we make, how we enforce them, and how we talk to and about students.

We offer a few resources below as a starting point for understanding how systemic racism works and our roles as individuals in maintaining how it functions. We know that reading and learning is only the first step and encourage you to look for more ways to take this learning into your classrooms and lives. Anti-racism work is an active and ongoing process and in the coming weeks we will be sending follow-up newsletters that include additional ways we can all continue this important work in New Mexico.

Hello, I was hoping I could get your help in getting the word out in New Mexico through social media about this wonderful free week-long Educator Anti-Racist conference led by experts from the country. So far educators from 43 states and 5 countries have signed up, but few educators from New Mexico know about it. Here is our website if you're interested: https://sites.google.com/view/abolitionistteachingbookclub/home
In the midst of disappointment and uncertainty, there was a spark of joy yesterday. Our proposal for the National Council of Teachers of English annual conference was accepted. The English Department of Los Alamos High School will be representing at NCTE 2020 in Denver. Thank you to Alfredo Celedón Luján and New Mexico Council of Teachers of English for your help and guidance. Bravo to my colleagues who worked together to write a great proposal. Thank you to the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation for granting us funding to travel to Denver. We'll need to raise more funds so that our entire department can attend NCTE but the Foundation has given us a great start. We are pleased to notify you that we have accepted the following proposal(s): Confluence and Contradiction: Teaching from the Atomic City -- the Literature and Disruption of Place Friday, November 20, 2020 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
