We have been enormously successful with the Nonfiction Minute due to you. In 2014-2015 we had 300,000 page views and 90,000 unique visitors. This past year(2015-2016) our traffic is up 40%. We repeated (with some modification) the Minutes of the previous year, publishing one week of Minutes at a time so that teachers could plan their use. By reading the Minutes you and your students get to meet the extremely talented authors who create nonfiction for children. Now they can go to the library and read a book by an author who speaks to them. Most importantly, access to these original essays are FREE. Children need to be exposed to excellence in order to know it when they read it elsewhere.
There has been a clamoring for a new year of Minutes, which we would love to do except that we can't produce this much work without compensation. So we are looking for grants, contributions, board members who can make significant contributions, partnerships with other literacy companies. If you can help, please write me directly.
iNK Think Tank, Inc., which produces the Nonfiction Minute, has become a non-profit organization. This means that we have 501 (c) (3) status and all contributions are tax-deductible.
It has been our pleasure to create this body of work for teachers and students everywhere. We are leaving this website in place so that you can continue to access all our Minutes through the archives.Thank you for your support. Have a wonderful summer.
