Since 1956, the International Literacy Association has been a nonprofit global network of individuals and institutions committed to worldwide literacy. More than 53,000 members strong, the association supports literacy professionals through a wide range of resources, advocacy efforts, volunteerism, and professional development activities.
To that end, ILA is accepting applications for the 2018 Regie Routman Teacher Recognition grant.
A grant of $2,500 will be awarded to an outstanding mainstream elementary classroom teacher dedicated to improving the teaching and learning of reading and writing in real-world contexts in kindergarten to sixth grade.
To be eligible, teachers must be a member of ILA, with at least 60 percent of his/her school’s students eligible for free or reduced lunch.
See the ILA Web site for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
