Fox29 Visits as 6th and 7th Graders Talk About Differences with myFace

Good Day Philadelphia reporter Jennaphr Frederick visited AIM Academy on April 4th for a live television interview with 7th grade language arts students and myFace Director of Family Programs Dina Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg, who has a craniofacial difference, was visiting AIM to speak with 6th and 7th graders as part of students' background knowledge activities in preparation to read the book Wonder, about a boy with craniofacial differences, and Out Of My Mind, about a teen with cerebral palsy who cannot speak.

Students shared the lessons they'd learned from reading Wonder and the importance of embracing and accepting everyone's differences. Following the Fox29 interview the entire 6th and 7th grade classes had the opportunity to learn and talk more about craniofacial differences with Zuckerberg and the importance of promoting acceptance and kindness among adolescents.
