ReedALOUD for WRAD: Alvin Ailey

It's Confidence Week in the read up to 
Today, my fourth graders and I read the biography of Alvin Ailey, written by Andrea Davis Pinkney and illustrated by Brian Pinkney.

After reading this well-written and beautifully-illustrated book the students and I watched this video of clips from the 
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre production of Revelations.

The students were moved by the production and wanted to see more of the dances. I love this opportunity to grow and plant seeds of curiosity and understanding.

How will confidence serve these students as they pursue their dreams?
