Fairfax County Reading Teachers Association...
...represents a unified voice in language arts to local, state, and national policy makers, as well as state and national legislators, in order to influence decisions about reading instruction.
...is open to all K-12 teachers, reading specialists, librarians, and administrators who are supporters of the best practices in literacy education in Fairfax County Public Schools.
Join FCRTA and help us build a better future through a love of reading and learning.
Our most recent efforts at enhancing the teaching lives of Fairfax County teachers include…
Each year FCRTA has in some way tried to give back to the community by means of a community service project. By holding book drives, we’ve been able to donate books to some of our schools that need resources. FCRTA has also awarded classroom library grants to members’ schools that demonstrated need. Last year, FCRTA was able to award two professional growth grants for teachers interested in attending a literacy conference.
FCRTA has been fortunate to co-host top-notch staff development with the help of the Fairfax Educational Association (FEA). In the past we’ve helped defray the cost for our members to attend such featured literacy authors such as Stephanie Harvey, Janet Allen, Richard Allington, Barry Lane, Ralph Fletcher, Linda Hoyt, Chris Tovani, Ellin Oliver Keene, and most recently, Pat Johnson and Katie Keier.
FCRTA is continually in the process of updating its website so that it can be a resource to all visitors. We hope you will enjoy the “comprehension strategy book list.” Please feel free to let us know your ideas on how we can make this resource even more valuable.
