Day 2 of MEXTESOL National ConventionPosted: October 29, 2011
Today was a busy day, full of meetings, breakfasting with Jim Scrivener and valuable talks, workshops and conferences. We have been connecting with many people and it looks like our Regional Convention will be extraordinary with so much new input and great opportunities for professional development.
Today was a special day for the Morelia Chapter. At precisely 12 noon the National Executive Committee swore in three new chapters and Morelia was one. We are now officially functioning as a chapter. With special thanks to each and every member, we know that what we provide will help make English Language Teaching in our state better in every way.
Two highlights of the day that were special to many people were
1. a musical theater presentation of a play geared toward English Language Learners by the Green Kitchen, a group from Mexico. They put on a fine performance called “The .New Sherlock”
2. an entertaining and highly engaging plenary by Ken Wilson called Motivating the Unmotivated.
Tomorrow looks to be excellent with poster sessions, plenaries, key notes and workshops continuing all day. We will keep in touch.
