Yes. Be very cautious about it. Have the support of admin before you attempt teaching it. Especially if you live in a conservative area. Send parent letters home. You can’t CYA too much with this book. I love it and wish that everybody could appreciate it for the valuable piece of literature that it is.

Yes, I've taught it twice. The students love it. I've taught it to 10th grade and above.

I’ve been daydreaming of a community loom in the school or classroom. Has anyone done this or have any tips? I’m wondering if people will want to participate or take the materials and “redecorate””.

Is there any McK/Bain fish willing to chat? Current 2nd year Consultant in good standing. Want to move since this is the most optimal time - will likely not lose tenure too because just started year 2. Feel alignment of culture is an issue at BCG. Happy to speak more in private.
