Friday’s theme: finding examples of the EL Education design principles within a built structure. 4/13 - This month, the BCS Library Book Club read The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill. So exciting to have 6th grade teachers, Sheila and Laura, join us in Friday's discussion of this layered and skillfully written middle-grade fantasy. It’s a challenging read and our students did an amazing job reading, discussing, and analyzing! Shout out to our librarian Amanda C!
