During the pilot project of Young Changemakers in 21st Century Libraries (October 2018- September 2019), the library cohort incorporated the 10 Questions Framework into various library programs and activities.
GOAL OF THE PROGRAM Allow select students opportunities to explore race, their identities, and their voice through a book club and art.
We will select about 10 students who are identified through the guidance office, our transitions team, and the advisors for our Black History Committee to be involved in our Book Club.
We will meet 5 -6 times, to discuss books, their own experiences, and plan an art piece for our school community.
INCORPORATION OF THE 10 QUESTIONS
- We will organize the our book discussions based on the 10 Questions. We will look at ways that the characters or people in the books would approach the questions, and we will ask the students to consider those questions as they find their own voice on issues of importance.
- When planning an art display, the students will be given the opportunity to incorporate the themes from the 10 questions in their art.
DURATION OF THE PROGRAM Fall 2019
NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS About 10 students
INSTRUCTOR/FACILITATOR Denise Satterfield, Emily Bredberg, Sue Donofrio
FUTURE DIRECTION We are still in the planning stages of this project, but there is potential for it to expand if future years if next fall is successful.
