Orientation Common Read

One of the most important things we do as part of Orientation is bring students, staff, and faculty together around pressing topics and questions through shared reading.

This year, we are inviting you to read excerpts from two recent books: Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds by adrienne maree brown and Teaching Critical Thinking: Practical Wisdom by bell hooks.

How You Get Your Copy

New students can access the assigned readings through their new student orientation canvas page (Evergreen Login Required).

Reading and Thinking About the Book

Once you’re here at Evergreen, you’ll be reading texts like this and discussing them with your 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.
