The Extensive Reading Foundation Language Learner Literature Award

Posted by Mariel Amez on March 1, 2009

To encourage teachers and students to read and evaluate the books, the ERF, in cooperation with publishers, has a Finalist Evaluation Program. In each category, two copies each of the three finalist titles are placed in the hands of 10 classes around the world.  Successful applicants will receive the books soon after the finalists have been announced at the beginning of April 2009.  

You may apply for consideration if:

   1. Your class, school or library has an extensive reading program in place to which the supplied titles can be added.
   2. Students can read, evaluate and vote for the books by the July 10 deadline.

Read more on the topic in the ERF website.

Although the website mentions the deadline was February 20, 2009 , Tom Robbin (co-webmaster of the ERF site) tells us

“none of the categories has yet reached its full complement of 10 participants, so the deadline has been extended to March 10.”

Good news, isn’t it?
