Texts on My Mind This Week – September 13, 2021

This weekly post is a spot for me to list what texts have been tumbling around in my mind and share a few quick notes about each.

What White People Can Do Next: From Allyship to Coalition – Emma Dabiri

Emma Dabiri’s book doesn’t hold back regarding exactly what the title states – what white people can do next in order to move beyond allyship and into coalition.


Seedfolks – Paul Fleischman

My favorite way to kick off one of my other freshmen courses. We are early on in the collection of stories and trying to make sense of everything.


A Raisin in the Sun – Lorraine Hansberry

First read of this classic play alongside freshmen. I’m a few days ahead and am looking forward to digging into the text with students for the first time.


The Soloist: A Lost Dream, an Unlikely Friendship, and the Redemptive Power of Music – Steve Lopez

My second First Chapter Friday selection and choice for September Independent Reading unit with sophomores.


Finding D.W. – Jason Szwimer
