Read, reflect on, and respond to Being the Change:  Lessons and Strategies to Teach Social Comprehension by Sara K. Ahmed and/or Rebellious Read Alouds:  Inviting Conversations About Diversity With Children’s Books by Vera Ahiyya.  Beginning January 22, these seven-week online discussions will help your students develop skills of social comprehension to make sense of themselves and the world as they navigate relevant topics in today’s society and/or to spark meaningful conversations about race, identity, and social justice in your classroom using read alouds as an entry point.  Participants who complete all assignments will be eligible to receive 15 PD clock hours for each book club.  Participants who complete one book club during the Winter will have the opportunity to participate in the other one during the Spring session.
