Typically, we think about borders in the physical sense, separating one group of people from another. However, there are many other borders and barriers we face as humans and as teachers, in particular. This mornings conversations will give you time and a place to explore sets of books that cross the grade levels from pre-school to high school and talk with others about how to use them in your classroom.
