Newsela’s A Mile In Our Shoes is a K-12 program that promotes empathy and inclusivity through reading. As part of the program, Newsela has curated Text Sets that give students the opportunity to read about different perspectives and lived experiences: people of varying backgrounds, skin colors, religions, sexual orientations, socioeconomic statuses, and nations of origin.

Students built understanding and reflected on the similarities and differences in their own experiences. Our teachers gained the tools to foster rich discussions to promote identity, diversity, justice, and action within and beyond our classrooms.

Special thanks to the Newsela’s partners for making this event possible: Teaching Tolerance, Define American, Brooklyn Nets, and the Jeremy Lin Foundation.
