Workshop Breakout Proposals

The theme for the 2014 ALAN workshop is Is the Sky the Limit? Using Teen Literature to Forge Connections in a World With Disappearing Boundaries-- As our online media world gives us total access to everything all the time, what can we as teachers, writers, librarians, publishers, and students do to remain connected, make new connections, and use literature as a bridge between our respective worlds?

Breakout session proposals will be evaluated on the way they address the issues raised by the above topic and how they offer attendees food for thought, a lively discussion, and practical solutions to the issues and problems faced in the classroom and/or library. A wide range of approaches and topics is hoped for.

Please note: The 2014 ALAN workshop breakout sessions will not include authors. Authors interested in speaking at the workshop must submit their interest through their publisher. Breakout proposals that include authors will not be accepted.

Download the proposal form in Microsoft Word format. Electronic and mail-in submissions are accepted; see the form for more details.
