World Read Aloud Day March 7: Literacy as a Human Right

by Lian on March 1, 2012

 

From more information about World Read Aloud Day and LitWorld, click here.

 

I know I’m preaching to choir here… so I won’t even spend along time on the set-up. Again, this year, I’m a a WRADvocate, a volunteer spokesperson for  World Read Aloud Day. The goal of the global event is to call attention to literacy as a human right.  The mission of World Read Aloud Day is to reinforce the concept that all children have the right to safe education, complete with reading material and technology.

By involving children in the LitLoop of Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking, we can improve their intellectual, economic and political future. In other words, read a book to kid and change the world.

I know my Chaos Crew is on board with this… so let’s skip to the good stuff. If you’re a teacher, parent, uncle, concerned citizen and want to get involved in an activity or event to celebrate World Read Aloud Day, click here. Lots of  activities, events, coloring pages, ideas and a chance to support the day with donations.

 

Embracing my Chaos, Lian

Hi Lian,
I’m enjoying the Chaos Chronicles present and some from the past, too.

I just listened to the one where you talked about what not to say to people experiencing infertility. As a person who experienced inferility, they were great!

By the way, did you see this entry from the writer of the article?

Thanks for your podcast.
