Schools districts and students generally do not have access to hard copy dictionaries and in areas of poor internet access there is a need. The Dictionary Project nationwide has identified third grade as a great opportunity to introduce students to this educational tool. The club will add information on Rotary, including the Four Way Test, to the books before they are presented to the students individually. Teams will do a presentation on Rotary and how to use the Dictionary/Thesaurus. Each student will be encouraged to write their name in the book. This will be their book to keep and use at school and at home. If the Rotary teams are unable to do an in-person presentation a video and/or a virtual meeting will potentially be utilized to present the program.
