Middle Schoolers had a wonderful time during this year’s National African American Read-In as part of Key’s celebration of Black History Month. Students engaged in various interactive stations, representing African American art, poetry, music, historical fiction and non-fiction, and contemporary realistic fiction and essays, and had the opportunity to create works of their own based on their studies. Students also selected lines of writing they encountered that “spoke” to them and added them to a collective response wall. A heartfelt thank you to all parents who attended Key’s second annual African American Read-In, to parent Christine Platt Patrick who spoke at the beginning of the event, and to Wendy Braithwaite and Key’s Librarians who carefully gathered an incredible array of books and materials for all to peruse. Planning for next year is already underway. Click here for photos.
