Later this summer, (tentatively, the second half of July and August,) ASBDA will sponsor a book study group with Start Where You Are, But Don't Stay There: Understanding Diversity, Opportunity Gaps, and Teaching in Today's Classrooms, by Richard Milner IV. Tentative plans include at least four Zoom one-hour sessions for group discussion following specific reading assignments. (We will take into account feedback from those interested before we schedule the sessions.) Our focus will be on identifying specific connections and applications to our subject area of instrumental music. Documentation for continuing education/professional development credit will be provided to those who complete the study.
