As we enter August, we hope that you have been enjoying a restful summer with time for intentional and meaningful leisure. For us at ILS, that has included plenty of time for reading and reflection, which we hope that you have had the opportunity to enjoy also. And so, we have for your enjoyment, our final summer edition of "What we're reading..." (But don't worry- we'll kick off the new school year in September with a new edition - so send us any interesting things you've read this summer so that we can take a read!)
This month, we contemplate voices in mythology, a look at what schools need to do if democracy is to work, the dangers of re-writing literature, a historic discovery, and more. As always, we hope you enjoy these articles as well!
