2018 HEF Grant | Oppression to Compassion Book Club

Christina Biondo & Lois Atkins, English Teachers
Riley Street Middle School 

8th grade students at Riley Street Middle School are able to read, discuss, think, and learn through Book Clubs coordinated by teachers Mrs. Biondo and Mrs. Atkins. Copies of five different modern works of literature were furnished by a HEF grant last year. These Book Clubs motivate students to read and allow groups to share different takeaways and reach light bulb moments through active discussion.
