The Information Text Awareness Program (ITAP)

The Information Text Awareness Program (ITAP), known formerly as the Non Fiction Book Flood, supports Pacific Island nations’ teachers using information texts in their classrooms.

IDOC is pleased to be the recipient of an in-kind donation from Sheena Cameron and Louise Dempsey who are the authors of “The Oral Language Book”. Sheena and Louise have committed $1 from the sale of each book to provide teacher professional learning workshops in Oceania islands.
