    About the Reading Group

    This group was created to explore books written by authors of diverse backgrounds in order to promote their use in the classroom. Discussions will include responses to the books and connections to standards, students, our shared history, and current times. 

    Come with the books read, questions to ask, connections, and any ideas or expertise that you are willing to share. The discussion is free, but you need to provide your own books. A link will be emailed to registrants the day before the discussion. We look forward to learning with you!

    Email MCTE's secretary at if you have any questions.
