Just in time for Teacher Appreciation Week, SEED Co-director and English teacher Emily Style's latest article, "Curriculum as Encounter: Selves and Shelves," has appeared in the May issue of English Journal (available to NCTE members only). The piece extends her previous articles on "Curriculum as Window and Mirror" and "Resources and Strategies for Doing Window and Mirror Curriculum Work."

April is National Poetry Month. Many SEED leaders have found that sharing poems in their SEED seminars is a powerful way to offer participants mirrors of their own experiences and windows into those of others. SEED as an organization also has a history connected with poetry.
A key SEED practice is using personal stories to illuminate systems of inequality and oppression. I was reminded of that this past week as my family celebrated Passover, the Jewish holiday in which we remember gaining our freedom from slavery in Egypt â and when we encourage ourselves to keep working for the freedom of all people even today.
