Out of My Mind

Submitted by susan.bird on

Students in Miss White's class are reading a class novel together called Out Of My Mind by Sharon M Draper. It’s a story about a girl named Melody who has cerebral palsy and cannot walk or talk. She communicates by pointing to words on a board. They did a communication challenge activity to help students experience a small part of what that might be like. They discussed what was challenging about it and how students were able to communicate in ways other than speaking. They discussed empathy and what it would be like for the main character.
