International Literacy Day Tool Kit.
This tool kit suggests various International Literacy Day activities to raise awareness of the issues of adult literacy and language learning, to connect local literacy programs with national programs, and to help achieve the National Literacy Summit goal by 2010. The kit is intended for individuals, programs, and organizations that want to call attention to their own efforts to promote adult literacy, language, and lifelong learning by celebrating International Literacy Day on September 8 of each year. Some of the suggested activities are as follows: initiate a local, regional, or statewide meeting to develop an action plan; take your case to candidates running for office and office holders such as governors and mayors; hold a press conference, student event, or issue a news release; create a celebration packet of materials to share with other programs. Samples of suggested activities made by organizations, plans made for the 2001 International Literacy Day, cover letters, literacy proclamations, press releases, guidelines for feature stories, and tips for writing media releases are provided. A model packet and a resource list are included. (MO)
