Philly Girls Read is in its second month at ICS! I feel like a proud parent as I have so many aspirations for this group of young ladies. So much goes on in our Thursday night meetings; I can barely keep up. We are currently discussing advocacy in its many forms. We frequently talk about the importance of being an advocate for ourselves as well as others. Specifically we have started to explore being advocates for literacy, education, bullied students, and even healthy living. I hope to use this blog on a weekly basis to maintain a log of what we have accomplished.
I will also be using this blog as a learning tool in terms of reading and writing. I will post weekly writing prompts and recommendations for texts. Feel free to email me with content recommendations or questions.
Also, please let me know if you would like to be a speaker at an upcoming Philly Girls Read meeting or if you know of some program we should look into. I’d appreciate any feedback you can provide.
