International Literacy Day

Today, September 8, 2014, is International Literacy Day.  According to, "International Literacy Day is celebrated annually by the International Reading Association (IRA) and is designed to focus attention on literacy issues. IRA estimates that 780 million adults, nearly two-thirds of whom are women, do not know how to read and write. They also estimate that 94—115 million children worldwide do not have access to education. International Literacy Day is just one way the Association strives to increase literacy around the world."

Today in Title I, we discussed that there are many people in our world who do not know how to read and write, and how lucky we are to be able to have lots of books, and education accessible to us.  We also talked about why reading is important.  The following are the students ideas as to why reading is important.
