Being Different Is
From the Curator:
"These challenging times call for some very deep conversations with our students. Read alouds create a safe space to open the floor up for students’ thoughts, fears and wishes.
I'd like to introduce you to Being Different Is Being Unique, a thematic set for any grade level, really. This theme around identity and self-esteem consists of seven titles, including three authentic texts."
- Marie Bouteillon, Chief Innovation Officer
