SOE associate professors share recent book club project

August 23, 2021

Constance Beecher and Ji-Yeong I, associate professors in the School of Education, completed their first cohort of the “Changing the Gap” book club. The project’s purpose is to create a program for parents who have immigrated to the United States. In this book club, Korean parents read children’s books about diversity and learned about interactive reading with their children. Then they worked together to write a children’s book using Korean and English language.

The book was published through Iowa State digital press.
