Speaker: Cara Fitzgerald

Last Spring, English teacher Cara Fitzgerald, a 2001 Rhinelander High School and 2005 UW-Madison graduate, along with three Madison Memorial High School educators, led an all school read of All American Boys, an award winning novel about race relations.
In her presentation entitled Creating Conversations in the Community, Fitzgerald will talk about how the book discussion and subsequent month-long activities were organized and describe the effects this activity had on students, parents and police liaisons.  Fitzgerald will reflect upon the importance of community engagement.  For further information regarding the all-school read, please refer to the following website:  http://jmmreads.weebly.com/rationale.html
