We Begin...And We Should.

This marks the 9th edition of the Mighty Smackdown.  We have over 80 educators reading and thinking about books. Of course we know that reading builds empathy and it feels like the climate around us could use a little bit of empathy and humanity about now. I hope this opportunity of reading, thinking, arguing and writing helps us model and show a path to our students of thoughtful discourse. The brackets have been set...the reading has started. First deadline is November 27th. We invite all of you to read and argue thoughtfully with us!
