Don’t forget! Global Literacy Grants due August 15, 2012!

Worlds of Words is excited to announce the availability of $1000 grants for literacy communities to explore the use of global literature to build international understanding during the 2012-2013 school year. Global literature provides an opportunity for teachers and students to explore understandings about global cultures that go beyond surface information to explore the values and ways of living within those cultures. The current public interest in global education creates a potential space for innovation within K-12 classrooms. Engaging in that innovation within a professional community provides support and challenge through dialogue and shared explorations. The funding for these grants was made possible by the Longview Foundation for Education in World Affairs and International Understanding

Grants are for the time period of September 2012- May/June 2013. Send your proposals to shortk@email.arizona.edu and scorapi@email.arizona.edu.
