Book Club for Equity

Filed under: Uncategorized — sostrom @ 2:26 pm

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to invite you to participate in the ICSD Book Club for Equity.  We are meeting next Friday at 4:00 to discuss the book Young, Gifted and Black.  It is a short book of three essays discussing the roots and solutions to the achievement gap.  One of Ithaca’s primary goals is eliminating race, class and disability as predictors of success.  If you are interested, let me know and I’ll send you directions.  Next month’s book is The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie, which we’re all familiar with.  I figured this would be a good opportunity to see a different aspect of a school district than you usually see in a placement or student teaching, possibly make some connections, and discuss an issue that you will undoubtedly encounter in your classrooms.  Let me know if you’re interested!
