I need to decide whether or not to renew my membership in NCTE (The National Council of Teachers of English). I am a first-year teacher who teaches 10th grade English. I am pursuing my Master’s Degree in Rhetoric and the Teaching of Writing. I did not utilize anything related to my membership this last year, but I feel like maybe I should have? Are any of you members of national organizations? If so, which ones? Why?
