The Radium Girls
by Kate Moore
This school year, we are excited to announce the first ever community One Read! Together, with all the Fort Zumwalt high school libraries, Liberty High School in the Wentzville School District, and the St. Charles City-County Public Library, we are using the shocking, fascinating nonfiction book, The Radium Girls by Kate Moore. The goals for the One Read program are as follows:
Connect our school and greater communities through a shared reading experience
Offer a chance for multiple subject areas to connect learning to a common book through our curated resources
Offer independent student activities each week
Promote/foster literacy, particularly the reading of nonfiction
Connect the experiences of the dial-painters to that of local residents impacted by the dumping of nuclear waste in North St. Louis and Weldon Spring
Connect our school community to people and resources at/through the public library
