Literature, and the discussions it invites, can serve as an engaging and empathy-building opportunity for a whole-school read. This guide will help you design and implement a whole-school read that centers students' voices and experiences. The questions and activities in this guide invite critical thinking and conversation around issues of identity, belonging, choices, and justice. Exploring these ideas in community with others invites the students and adults at your school to consider how these concepts play out in other individuals’ lives as well as in their own.
