Join NCTE in Celebrating Literacy Education Advocacy Month
during March and April
Share the stories from your classroom and your expertise as a literacy educator during Literacy Education Advocacy Month! See our list of ideas for speaking out -- most items will take you 5-10 minutes, but there are also ideas that will take a little more or a little less time.
NCTE's 2012 Literacy Education Advocacy Day Is Thursday, April 19
Make plans now to join members of NCTE, including members of the Council's Executive Committee, on Capitol Hill on Thursday, April 19, 2012, for Literacy Education Advocacy Day. Register now!
In addition to learning the latest about literacy education issues at the federal level, you'll have the opportunity to meet with legislators and their staff members and to share your personal stories and experiences from your classroom with them.
Information about the 2012 Advocacy Day will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
