Celebrate International Literacy Day September 8... And Show the World Your Commitment to Literacy.
International Reading Association, Newark, DE.
International Literacy Day, observed September 8 and at events throughout the week, focuses attention on worldwide literacy issues and needs. Because International Literacy Day coincides with the beginning of a new school year in many countries, classroom teachers use this special day to recognize the importance of literacy in the lives of children and adults. These information sheets provide teachers with: idea starters for International Literacy Day activities and events; a fact sheet about International Literacy Day; tips for writing news releases and public service announcements; information for councils about International Literacy Day, and Honor Council opportunities; and information on the International Reading Association's global activities in support of literacy.
