Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Gilbert-Mesa, Arizona

Total Budget: $11,500

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: Literacy

Summary: Dictionaries to Third graders in Gilbert and Some Mesa Public Schools


Dictionaries may be used by students during merit testing, but schools cannot afford to provide them. Teachers use the extensive glossaries to teach geography, current events, astronomy, sign language and mathematics. Club members sticker each dictionary with a Rotary sticker and a Four-Way Test sticker, deliver the boxes to the schools and, when allowed, make a short presentation about Rotary, education and the importance of learning new words, their meanings, pronunciation and correct spelling. The program has been well-received by over thirty schools for nearly 20 years. The physical book is not dead and we can prove it.
