Area English, Spanish and French educators will gather to share best teaching practices and plan for the future of language and literature classrooms during the 2nd Literacy Summit at Texas A&M University-Kingsville beginning at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 18 in the Blue Room of Fore Hall.

The conference is based on two themes-teaching students and getting to know the students we teach, and using technology in the Humanities classroom and technology literacy.

Participants will engage in round-table discussions and share their ideas and experiences in the language arts classroom.

"This summit provides area educators with the opportunity to come together and discuss some of our challenges and approaches to teaching students," said Dr. Susan Roberson, assistant dean of College of Arts and Sciences and former chair of the Department of Language and Literature. "It will engage all of us in the conversation about what we do, the challenges we've faced and share some of our best practices."

This year's summit is supported by a grant from Humanities Texas, Barnes and Noble Bookstores and Kingsville Area Educators Federal Credit Union.

Educators from around the area are invited to attend this free event. Lunch will be provided. Call 593-2012 to register.
