Connecting ELA Teachers

Manitoba Association of Teachers of English is all things English Language Arts (ELA), striving to help English teachers connect with one another, hone their craft, access ELA resources, and register for the MATE MTS PD Day each October. Become a member and join our mission.

1.Thanks for submitting K-12 poems from your students for our annual Pandora Poetry Contest. We’ll be busy enjoying them and determining grade level winners. Please be  patient as our volunteers work through over 350 poems (wow!).

2. Our MATE AGM is happening in June (date to be determined). We invite all MATE members to join us. We’ll announce the format – virtual or in-person — shortly and how to attend.

3. MATE MTS PD Day October 21 features keynote speaker Mary Kalantzis (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign), a key influencer in developing our Manitoba ELA Curriculum Framework.
