Read Across America Day is Thursday, March 2. It’s a day to celebrate with your students and school community, with a focus on books and the written word, special guest readers and more.
Among those guest readers will be CTA officers and leaders around the state, including CTA President E. Toby Boyd. They’ll visit classrooms to meet students and read aloud books from CTA’s 2023 California Reads program: teacher-vetted, engaging books for all grade levels.
The California Reads page also offers past years’ selections and tips on how to make children better readers, available in eight languages. Members can find links to buy the books at a 20 percent discount.
And yes, reading and literacy are year-round activities! NEA offers a monthly calendar of recommended books, authors and teaching resources that promote diversity and inclusion at nea.org/readacrossamerica.
