Default Central States NIE Conference


Dear NIE Friend:

Please plan to attend the Central States Newspaper In Education conference at Texas Motor Speedway, June 16-18, 2010, hosted by Al and Judy Wilson. The Speedway Club is a pretty plush conference site.

The conference theme will be: "Basic NIE: Back to the Future of NIE", with the goal of making the newspaper an indispensable part of the educational process.

We will be putting the "N" and the "E" back in NIE. There WILL be newspapers at this conference, and you will be given ideas on how to use them exhaustively as an educational tool. You will leave this conference with dirty elbows.

"E" is for Education and E-editions. We will Explore Everyday Educational uses of the Newspaper to Enhance the students' learning Experience. You will leave this conference in "shock" related to the educational potential of the electronic edition.

It is hoped that newspapers will sponsor a teacher(s) to this educational conference.


The primary hotel is the Dallas/Ft. Worth Marriott Hotel & Golf Club at Champions Circle which is 1.1 mile from The Speedway Club. (FREE shuttle to/from The Speedway Club) The Texas Motor Speedway and the Marriott Hotel
are located at Interstate 35W & state highway 114.

The rate is $99.00 + taxes. You figure about $115.00 per night. Not too bad if you can share a room.

Rooms may be available after May 25th, but no guarantee. Check with the hotel for the rate. There are several hotels within five miles of the racetrack, on or near Interstate 35W. I will supply information on other nearby hotels at your request.

D/FW Marriott Hotelís phone number is 817-961-0800
Registration fee is $155 .00. Make checks payable to: Alfred J. Wilson

Conference will run from 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, June 16, to 11:00 a.m. Friday, June 18, 2010.
