Today is Read Across America Day

March is National Reading Month and Women’s History Month. There is a lot to read about, and NEA has many resources to help you, including suggested titles to read with your students.

The titles and resources featured by NEA’s Read Across America include books that students can see themselves reflected in, as well as books that allow readers to see a world or a character that might be different than them. Readers who feel included, recognized and a part of the world are engaged readers.

With our ever-changing student populations, Read Across America is rebranding with a new logo to appeal to students of all ages and backgrounds and a continued mission of “Celebrating a Nation of Diverse Readers.”

March 2 also is Dr. Seuss’ birthday, which can be celebrated with a reading event. But Read Across America now has a broadened scope, with activities, resources and ideas to keep students reading all year long.
