Classroom Sneak Peek: (Re)defining Beauty Through Skin Tone

One classroom exploration for students is to critically think about beauty, including society’s definition in contrast to our own.  From this students consider what makes them beautiful on the inside and out, with our individual skin tones being one of those elements of beauty.  Micheal Tyler’s book, The Skin I Live In, and Wendy Ewald’s text, The Best Part of Me to guide this work.  Check out the student work below to see more!
