Dr. Debbie Reese Discusses Misrepresentation of Native Americans in Literature with the 8th Graders

Throughout the year in their Individuals and Societies class, 8th Graders are examining the history of the United States from the "discovery" of America by Christopher Colombus through the Civil Rights Movement. Individuals and Societies Teacher Guillaume Roper-Sirvent and Librarians Maria Falgoust and Eli Hetko invited Dr. Debbie Reese, a scholar, and educator from the Nambé Owingeh nation, to come and speak with the entire 8th Grade to deepen students’ awareness of how Native Americans are way too often not taken into consideration in most historical, as well as fictional, books.

ISB’s First Common Read

This year, Librarian Maria Falgoust and MYP Coordinator and Middle School Language & Literature Teacher Katie Rogers teamed up to introduce the idea of a “common read” to the entire Middle School student body, as well as ISB’s faculty and staff. Over the summer, all chose to read either We are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World by Malala Yousafzai or Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah

We managed to pack in a week that included creative writing, bowling, urban farming, playing, films, gaming, dancing, and even a live music show!
