Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 20

The female scholars engaged in the book study activity and enjoyed the story as well as the dialogue about personal insecurities and how individaul differences are something to be proud of and embrace as our uniqueness rather than a flaw.  Many female scholars were able to relate and empathize with the character and eachother from the book reading and discussion.
