Middle School African American Read-In

Middle School students recently held an African American Read-In for Black History Month. After spending time browsing and reading the collected books, each student selected a passage the especially moved them to share with the group. Students sat in a circle in and took turns reading their selections aloud to the class. Students wrote a response on a sticky note to each of the other students after they heard the stories and histories. The notes and passages were placed on a central wall in the classroom where the communication and learning continues. Many thanks to the Lane Public Library for help in curating a rich supply of books and stories by and about African Americans, and to the National Council of Teachers of English, who organize the national African-American Read-In program each year.
