Reading Circle

Edited by Dominique Thomas, Independent Scholar and Allana Zuckerman, Mesa Community College

To encourage an ongoing dialogue with each other about what we are reading and how those readings are influencing our work, we are starting a reading circle and recommended reading list. Each issue we will share resources that have influenced our work and provide a space for additional submissions. This is a space for people to share what they are reading so we can get an idea of the different knowledge bases people are exposed to and what is influencing their research and practice. This is also a way for us to share information and knowledge across a variety of topics to showcase and enhance richness of thought within the field.

This week we are including a list of resources with information about mentoring students from diverse backgrounds. We hope you take a look at these and if there are additional resources please email us at the TCP!
