ACARC's Fall 2021 Events

We will be sharing our full brochure with all of our events within the next week!

In the meantime, be sure to register for our Fall 2021 events:

Walking, Talking and Reading to Make a Difference

Join us as we "walk and talk" about Reading to Make a Difference: Using Literature to Help Students Speak Freely, Think Deeply, and Take Action by Lester Laminack and Katie Kelly. ACARC leaders will facilitate discussions in small walking groups highlighting several chapters from the book. We will then come back together for a brief discussion sharing our takeaways we might try to embed in our practice. Reading our focus book, Reading to Make a Difference, prior to the event is recommended but not required.
