TEACHERSí BUDGET WOES LESSENED WITH GRANTED!
CHANDLER, AZ Ė Teachers, who as a group spend in excess of $1.3 billion of their personal funds per year on classroom materials according to the American Federation of Teachers, learn how to easily and successfully tap grant givers instead of their own pockets for much-needed funds with Chris Taylorís newest book, Granted! A Teacherís Guide to Writing & Winning Classroom Grants.
With GRANTED!, Taylor, a lawyer, educator and school advocate, shares her 20-plus years of experience with readers to simplify the sometimes intimidating application process for novice grant seekers, while at the same time revealing strategic, insider advice of benefit to even the most veteran grant writers. Taylor, who helped win numerous grants for deserving individuals and institutions, expertly guides teachers, librarians, administrators and PTO leaders step-by-step through every aspect of the grant process, providing proven methods for writing and winning grants. Invaluable worksheets organize and record grant seekersí thoughts, research, actions and data to give them the best possible chances of securing grants for school projects, supplies and anything else a grant might help fund. GRANTED! not only improves educatorsí chances of winning a grant, but also saves them valuable time when writing it by navigating them through a more direct route to the finish line.
Just as important, Taylorís support doesnít end once GRANTED! has been added to a personal or school library Ė it continues indefinitely through www.CafeGRANTED.com, a virtual cafť of a website that offers additional grant data, messages from fellow grant seekers, downloadable worksheets, a sample grant application package, contact info to help grant seekers connect with grant givers and much more.
