DonorsChoose Funding Available for Your Reading/Language Arts Classroom!

October 11, 2011

If you use the Bluford or King Series for your literacy lessons, we have an opportunity for you: share your best lesson plans in exchange for $35 DonorsChoose gift cards (up to 10).  Here are the details (from DonorsChoose): 

What’s available? Townsend Press is offering gift card funding to teachers who share their best literary lesson plans incorporating passages from the Bluford or King Series.  These lesson plans will be posted on and will be vetted to ensure they accurately incorporate the Bluford or King Series books.   

Am I eligible? If you plan to use Bluford or King Series books by Townsend Press to teach characterization, setting, reading comprehension strategies, or related topics, you can qualify for this funding.

 How do I participate?

1. Sign up by submitting your email address on this online form.

2. Visit and register for a free teacher account. Tip: Be sure to register with the same email address you use on

3. Log in to your account on and create a unit of 3 or more lessons (including lesson plans and additional resources) using chapters or selections from Bluford or King Series books to teach literary skills.


Then what happens? If your lessons meet the guidelines above, we’ll send you an emailed gift card: $35 per original, relevant lesson you upload (with a max of 10 lessons per teacher).

For best chance of funding, submit your lesson plans by 11/11/11.

Thanks so much!
