CATE Resolutions

CATE's resolution process

A message from the Resolutions Chair:

CATE members, the resolutions process needs input from many CATE members to be successful. It may be difficult for you to contact your local resolutions chair with a suggestion for a resolution. Therefore, if you have an idea for a resolution at any time throughout the year, you can send it to me, and I will forward it to your representative.

This should give more people a voice in future resolutions. Resolutions can be about local issues as well as state-wide issues. Follow the format of the resolutions below, starting with a background statement and then the resolution. Send the resolution to me with the following information:

Name
email address
affiliate council

FORMAT:

BACKGROUND

(Explain the issue, whether it be a description of a problem or a particularly noteworthy trend in the teaching of language arts. Current issues include classroom time taken to administer standardized tests and class size at grades 4-8 and 10-12.)

RESOLUTION

(Begin the statement, “Be it resolved that . . . “Make a call to action for an official or a political body. For example, you might resolve that the State Board of Education consolidate the STAR program so that fewer tests are required.)

TO

To whomever should receive this (i.e. newspapers, legislators, governors,. . . .

Thank you.
