What exactly is involved in writing grant applications? Who should be writing them? Where do you find out about available grant sources? How hard is it? Can you do it? If any of these questions sound familiar, then you have much in common with anyone who has ever submitted a grant application. In this webinar, Suzanne Costner, school library media specialist from Maryville, Tennessee, shared her own journey from fledgling grant writer to becoming chairperson of her school’s grant committee. The webinar included the following topics:

  • Easing into the world of grants
  • Places to look for funding
  • How to make the most of special opportunities
  • The importance of wish lists
In a time when budgets for testing and test preparation materials are edging out other instructional needs, we all can use a little help with keeping our classrooms stocked and providing lessons that make deep and lasting impacts.
