The Power of People:START A LITERACY MOVEMENT
We’ve said it before and we’ll stay it again: Change is good! This year, in addition to our new name, the International Literacy Association (formerly the International Reading Association) has a fresh take on celebrating International Literacy Day. ILA believes in the transformative power of literacy to create more successful societies, healthy communities, and prosperous economies. As champions of a vibrant literacy community for the last 60 years, we’ve learned that to create a literate world, we must be willing to come together and lead the charge in our own backyards. That is why on this International Literacy Day, we’ve created literacy activities and ideas inspired by a country that has done just that—the Philippines! We’re intrigued by this country’s powerful history, rich culture, and dedication to literacy and learning, and we know you and your students will be, too!
