view project at the bottom of the page

The United Nations' (UN) International Literacy Day annually falls on September 8 to raise people's awareness of and concern for literacy issues in the world. The day is marked by many events throughout the world. The International Reading Association estimates that 780 million adults, nearly two-thirds of whom are women, do not know how to read and write. They also estimate that 94-115 million children worldwide do not have access to education. Join our project and help promote the importance of literacy in the lives of children and adults by focusing attention in your classroom, your school, and your community on literacy issues in celebration of International Literacy Day, sponsored by the International Reading Association and the United Nations. Share how your students celebrate International Literacy Day. Request a page and then return anytime throughout the year - Sept 2010 through June 2011 - to upload your students works. Feel free to visit our Technology Depot page and see what teachers around the world are using. Click the image below and learn how to join our International Literacy Day project.
