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!
See the agenda, the topics we'll be discussing,
and other information about Advocacy Day.
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.
Curious, but want to learn more? Read about our previous events and learn more about visiting legislators in DC.
Can't make it to DC? That's all right! You can share the stories from your classroom and your expertise as a literacy educator during Literacy Education Advocacy Month right from home! See our 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 -- and our Action Alerts.
But I Don't Know Anything about Advocacy!
View the recording of "Finding Our Voice -- Speaking Out to Build Support for Our Work," an online session with Steven Zemelman and Harry Ross, and our "Advocacy for Everyday Teachers" online session where Susan Houser, Clarissa West-White, Shelbie Witte, and Millie Davis tells us how easy it is to advocate for literacy education!
