Orientation Common Read
Reading and thinking about books is central at Evergreen. You’ll be reading texts like the ones presented in Common Read and discussing them with fellow students and faculty.
Since you’re reading on your own this summer, we’ve prepared some resources to keep you company as you read and think about these dynamic and densely packed texts.
This year, we are inviting you to read excerpts from recent books.
Excerpts "Seeing the World Through Moss-Colored Glasses" and "Learning to See" from Gathering Moss: A Natural and Cultural History of Mosses by Robin Wall Kimmerer.
Teaching Critical Thinking: Practical Wisdom by bell hooks.
