CATE (California Association of Teachers of English) is a non-profit organization promoting communication, collaboration, and educational knowledge among all responsible for teaching English and the language arts. All California English teachers are encouraged to join.
The theme for the convention is “With Literacy and Justice for All.” We are looking for a variety of presentations to appeal to English language arts teachers across the state.
