The WSU President’s Teaching Academy will be joining the WSU Common Reading Program for the 2021-2022 academic year by supporting a book club for faculty to read Tales of Two Americas: Stories of Inequality in a Divided Nation edited by John Freeman.

For faculty* interested in joining the book club, the Teaching Academy will provide your book copy (print or e-book) for summer reading. Club groups will meet two times synchronously during fall semester, with asynchronous discussions available between meetings.

Our goal is to consider how the text can be applied to our classrooms and used to encourage our students’ engagement with topics related to social equity. We invite faculty at all ranks on all campuses to join! If interested, please complete this form by May 3rd and look for your book to be delivered. For questions, contact Ashley Boyd or Joy Egbert.

*Others interested in a digital exam copy of the book to consider for use in a course or student program will find more information on the Common Reading Program website soon.
