TED TALK - The Cost of Literacy: Providing Greater Access to Books for All Readers

Despite the fact that research clearly shows that access to books and voracious pleasure reading are the only way to become proficient and advanced readers, many schools actually spend little to nothing on these components when compared to other expenses in their literacy budget. This presentation will combine telling statistics, personal anecdotes, and provocative questions to challenge the audience to re-examine their literacy priorities and budget their financial resources accordingly.

Audience: Elementary Teacher, Middle Teacher, High School Teacher, Elementary Counselor, Middle School Counselor, High School Counselor, Elementary Administrators, Middle School Administrators, High School Administrators, Superintendent, District Office Leaders
