Education Department Common Read

GirlRisingStudents and faculty in the Education Department participate in the Common Read. Our compelling books provide opportunities for discussion, critical analysis, and connections to school learning communities and practice, while engaging us in deeper questions such as what is social justice, inclusion, and cultural responsiveness. Held each fall, the Common Read is explored in individual courses, departmental gatherings, and campus-wide events.
