SELF-STUDY: Grant Writing (5 hours)
“Need to apply for a grant to enhance your classroom learning environment but not sure where to start?”
Every teacher dreams of an ideal world where the lack of funds or access to resources would not get in the way of sparking creativity, sharpening talent and widening horizons in education. Grant writing, as a craft, is a step closer to achieving that dream.
What can seem to be a complex set of processes, is a learnable skill, that can help teachers address both long-term and short-term goals. This online PD course presents a context that makes grant writing an essential skill while detailing the components of a grant application and the process of writing including assessing needs, developing an idea, writing a compelling statement, defining clear goals and objectives, developing a course of action and an evaluation plan, and drafting budget proposals.
This online course for teachers offers a look at some winning grant proposals to help teachers understand what a good proposal contains. Besides presenting principles, the class allows time for reflection, brainstorming and writing, to help teachers as they go through each section.
