Reading is a great way to see our own lives reflected back at us, but it’s also important to read about people who look or live differently than we do. This helps to create empathy and understanding.
For this challenge, teens in grades 6-12 are invited to read books that have been written by and about marginalized groups during the 2020-2021 school year. Track your reading in Beanstack and be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a prize.
