Image ID: the background of image 1 is orange (upper one-third) and purple (lower two-thirds), with a large white square with rounded corners overlaying and within that square, this text in purple: “This year at a school assembly led by the first-grade classrooms at my kid’s school, the presentation included a book reading in English and Spanish (with a bilingual ESP doing the Spanish reading) and a song in English with ASL accompanying. It was really great. Also great: I later learned that the fifth-grade classrooms are considering a similar approach for their own upcoming school assembly presentation.”
Image 2 has the same orange/purple split background, with the white text “STORY THEMES” running up the lower left side and two columns of white boxes (four per column) displaying our eight story themes. Here, the themes actions & strategies and the future are emphasized with bright/bold colors and the themes lack of understanding, emotional response, educational challenges, whiteness, race & identity, and hurt & exclusion deemphasized with paler colors.
