During quarantine, many students find themselves subjected to binge-watching accessible streaming services and completing demanding online course work. By the time school resumes, the idea of holding a hardcover seems almost foreign. Therefore, my students (both weary and disconnected from a traditional classroom setting) will reap endless benefits from this nonfictional novel. Likewise, social learning is all about learning from one another. After the pandemic, it is impossible to determine the emotional needs of our students. More than ever, students need reminders from their teachers on the benefits of processing our mental capacities during this strange time. Therefore, my initiative with the text, "The Other Wes Moore" is to both promote a positive growth mindset for students as they transition back to school and to find an easy way to revive the love for reading. The Other Wes More is a story of a generation of boys trying to find their way in a hostile world. Despite fear and chaos, our students are battling both an emotional and mental battle beyond our capacity to understand. Therefore, I believe this text, with alternative endings from the two boys, will remind students the amount of responsibility placed in decision making. Thus, social and emotional learning enhances a student's ability to excel in all areas of life. As I reach my fourth year of teaching ELA, the amount of activities and lessons I can create from this text is endless. I am truly excited to begin this journey with my students, and your efforts will help me reach this desired goal. Thank you for reading. .
