We had a meeting last Saturday (3/13) where we got to meet with Ben Heitz from VT Digger. Heitz runs the Underground Workshop which allows Vermont students to be journalists and write about topics of their choosing. Right now the Underground Workshop is working on several different stories on the Black Lives Matter flag in high schools.
We also wanted to thank The Galaxy Workshop for donating one set of each book to one of their local elementary schools!
For our next step in our book project, we are ready to buy our books! We plan to reach out to publishers and local bookstores to see if they would be willing to donate or give us a percentage off.
In our next meeting (3/19 at 4 pm), we'll be having a run-through of our books and our curriculum and soon we'll plan on inviting teachers. We want to get some teacher opinions on our plans and soon we'll be ready for some practice runs with students.
