Meeting Notes for July

Meeting Notes for July 19:

Positive Comments:

  • The children’s emotions come through the story clearly.
  • The protagonist is unaware that she is helping a boy in her class learn to read, but an adult reader immediately sees the child’s accomplishment.

Concerns:

  • That the protagonist does not like math is a stereotypical female attribute.
  • The message that one talent rather than several might be enough is somewhat simplistic.
