S4 E1 All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely Book Club Friday and Saturday

By Rebecca Chambers

R.I.S.E. Academy is a Not for Private virtual high school that focuses on service learning, connecting youth to their community and finding ways to create solutions to problems related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. On this podcast the youth in the program interview amazing people who are doing things to create change.

In this episode of the Social Change Maker Podcast we start our first ever book club. Mohammad is a grade 9 student at R.I.S.E. who is reaching ahead and taking grade 10 English. He chose the book All American Boys by Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely to read. Each week Mohammad creates questions related to the book for a discussion with Barbara Carey, retired grade 7 / 8 English teacher and Khater Muhajir a recent graduate from Wilfrid Laurier University in public health.

This week we discuss Friday and Saturday. If you are following along and have read the book or are reading the book, we would love to have questions sent to discuss or to have you join us. You can contact us via email rebecca@riseacademy.ca.
