Fostering Diversity Awareness at Walden
May 1, 2015
Each spring, members of the Walden School community gather in the North Yard for an evening picnic with Walden storytellers and poets, before heading to the classrooms to celebrate student writing with publishing parties at the annual FEAST on Writing.
FEAST (Families Eating And Storytelling Together) highlights the value of sharing stories through the lens of diversity. The event began almost two decades ago and continues to honor the story that exists in every child, using story as a bridge to understanding and awareness.
Walden School’s Board of Trustees Walden Equity (WE) Committee is pleased to publish an annual anthology of stories from Walden School student writers around the theme of diversity. The anthologies contain student stories from the FEAST on Writing event each year as well as stories selected by the faculty.
This year, families were treated to stories from Storyteller-in-Residence Stephanie Townes, Diversity Coordinator Billy Christian, and poems from 4/5 Teacher Tiffanie Hoang.
