BCTELA Book Club Summer 2019 -Deadline extended to Thursday July 18th!

Now Here This: BCTELA Summer Book Club 2019 is launching!

For those BCTELA members who love to do summer reading, we are resurrecting our book club! BCTELA members who apply by the deadline (July 12, 2019) via email with the application form will receive a free copy of the book The Peacemaker by David A. Robertson.

David, an Indigenous author who has published many books for school aged learners, is our keynote for the October 2019 conference. We thought this would be a great opportunity to read, discuss and share our ideas regarding the use of this book in our classrooms prior to hearing David speak.

We will host a Twitterchat on Wednesday August 28th at 7 pm with the hashtag #bctelabook2019 to facilitate our conversations across the province.

A twitter chat is a real-time conversation held over twitter using hashtags to link tweets and threads.


This is open to BC Teachers who are members of BCTELA. Download the application below, fill it out and email to Kate Campbell ( ) by July 12, 2019. Use subject line “BCTELA Bookclub.”
