Description

Do you have a great teaching idea but no way to pay for it? No problem! A successful grant proposal can be the answer. Get Money for Your Classroom guides you through each step of the grant-writing process, answering common questions and providing examples from real, successful grant proposals. The first half of the book breaks down the "nuts and bolts" of a grant application; the second half introduces the author’s MONEY TALKS acronym to illustrate ten important tips for writing a successful grant application:

M: Make Time T: Tell a Story

O: Obey the Application Rules A: Ask for Action Items

N: Never Start New L: Learn What’s Funded

E: Everybody Involved K: Keep Trying

Y: Youth Input S: Show Sustainability

Each chapter is full of examples—what to do and what to avoid—from the author’s own grant applications. The book’s appendix includes a list of national and regional grant programs appropriate for teachers. These helpful resources and the author’s practical advice will give you the confidence and motivation to start applying on your own!
