Walk a Mile...
A good book can do something special - it can transport its reader to another place, another time, a different experience. Stories, shared not only as memoirs and biographies, but also in fiction, can help us see perspectives we may not have experienced or considered before.
Please join us in a concerted effort to walk a mile in the shoes of others by diving into their stories feet first.
What is it?
Walk a Mile is an opportunity to build communities of readers at WVHS: in classrooms, through clubs and organizations, on athletic teams, with friends, teachers, and coworkers.
Each team’s goal is to read 5,280 minutes, the same number of feet in a mile, during the month of March.
The goal is to encourage empathy, perspective taking, and acceptance by prompting Warriors to read books, both fiction and non-fiction, about people who are different from themselves. By immersing ourselves in the stories of others, we can better understand the paths they choose to follow and experience what it means to Walk a Mile in My Shoes.
