Opportunities for Engagement
Supporting Fellow Scholars
Ms. Spivey will only receive her materials if this project is fully funded by Dec 10, 2016.
As a teacher in a low-income/high-poverty Title I school, my students are faced with many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Over 90% of my students are English language learners (ELL). The achievement gap between ELL students and their English speaking counterparts is very wide.
Supporting Fellow PDK Alumni
More than simply reading with a child, you will help your student gain the key foundational skills they need to become a proficient reader and confident learner.
Present a Professional Development Webinar
Developed by PDKWUCC's current president, Shawna Ebbeson, the Virtual Professional Development Fair features six opportunities on one Saturday in the Fall and in the Spring for professional development. One of these sessions is reserved for a Student Symposium where we hear from the youth (k-12) that we serve.
Opportunities to present at one of the monthly webinars is also available.
Making a Global Difference
The African Library Project brings gently used books to an African community that has lots of eager readers but very few books. Please help by collecting and delivering gently used books or by raising money to help pay for shipping to Africa. It only takes 1000 books and $500 to start a single library (and a little elbow grease!)
Contributing to the Field
As a chapter member, you will have access to our peer-reviewed journal, The Journal of Educational Practice and Social Change. Members are encouraged to continue in their careers as scholar-practitioners and submit scholarly articles to contribute to available research in the field of education.
Sharing Your Story
Members are encouraged to submit content for our website, newsletter, quick-bites live segments, as well as our Members in Action page. Let us know the ways in which you are involved in your community, in the field, and with other disciplines.
Supporting Your Community
You have something unique and valuable to contribute right where you are. Many schools have an outreach program or agency to contact for volunteer opportunities that will support your community. Libraries frequently welcome visitors to story hour or provide space for meetings. There are endless ways you can use your gifts, talents, experience, and education to be a strong advocate for equitable education in your community.
