Book Clubs

For Fall 2020, we are offering three opportunities to build a small community that will explore the topics presented in books we have identified as timely and supportive of teaching and learning. These clubs will meet three times during the semester (please see dates below), at which time participants will engage in facilitated discussion focused on the reading. Books will be provided for book club participants.
