Today we were treated to the new Book of the Month. The mood was set as we walked into a darkened Media Center with a center spotlight on a potter's wheel.
After the reading we were challenged to use a close reading lens (illustration, word choice, history, what was not stated...) with small groups to discuss and come up with the central message of the book. This inspiring story captures the human spirit, overcoming all obstacles and flourishing. What a treat this professional development was!
