MHS - Project LIT

ABOUT

Project LIT

. . . is a national, grassroots literacy movement, a team of dedicated educators and students who work together to:

  • EMPOWER our students as readers, writers, and leaders
  • PROMOTE a love of reading in our schools and communities
  • NURTURE authentic reading identities by increasing access to high-quality books, building community, and fostering a sense of belonging
  • CHAMPION young people and books that reflect their lived realities, communities, and identities
  • ADVOCATE for literacy policies and practices that will build lifelong readers
  • SUPPORT AND INSPIRE one another as we improve our practice and pedagogy
  • READ, DISCUSS, AND CELEBRATE books that make our students feel seen, heard, affirmed, and valued
  • DEVELOP our cultural competence and EXPAND our thinking, regardless of individual starting point
  • AMPLIFY voices and stories of students and educators of color
  • REWRITE the narrative about which texts and authors are deemed worthy of academic study
  • PROVIDE students with as many positive literacy experiences as possible

The Chippewa Valley Chapter

. . . is a cross-school club that celebrates books, reading, and seeks to promote them in the community. We are students in the Eau Claire, Altoona, and Eleva-Strum school districts. We participate in the national Project LIT activities, as well as our own local service projects and monthly book group. 

In the 2020-2021 school year we will meet virtually using Microsoft Teams. Contact Mrs. Wojahn for information about our next meetings.
