We Read Too is a directory of hundreds of picture, chapter, middle grade, and young adult books written by authors of color featuring main characters of color. Teachers, students, librarians, or parents can freely download the directory on any iOS or Android device. After downloading the app, they can browse and search the directory of hundreds of titles, view details about each book, share the book to any social media platform, or view it online where they can purchase or add it to their Goodreads profile. Users can also suggest any title that they think should be added to the directory; suggested titles will be moderated before they are added.
Each time you and your students embark on a new story,
your characters undergo a transformation. If you lead your students through the
elements we’ve discussed (creating an epic classroom, uncovering a conflict, and traversing the rising action to solve the conflict) then the transformation will happen by itself. A critical part of
epic learning is helping students to realize that metamorphosis and use what
they’ve learned. Here are a few activities to facilitate reflection and wrap up
your epic learning experience.

Drawing lessons from school districts and libraries, ISKME developed the free guidebook to help school librarians and district officials develop a coherent roadmap for OER curation and implementation.
