Hi Friends–

We invite you to join an open, informal conversation tonight, Wed, Jan 22, at 9E/8C/7M/6P about what’s next for you and your students. We will be talking about how we amplify the voices of our students and nurture connections between them with Youth Voices, NowComment, and LRNG.

  • How are you planning to get your students involved this coming semester? What supports might you need from all of us?
  • Chris Sloan and I have been continuing to imagine connections via collections or “text sets” and study groups on NowComment. We could do some basic NowComment talk as well as describe how we are connecting some of the categories on Youth Voices with study groups on NowComment. Check out
  • We are excited about “Let’s Talk About Election 2020.” We should talk about how we can support and add to this work. And the showcase has just opened:
