A Birthday Cake for George Washington

I suspect that many of you have been following the discussions about A BIRTHDAY CAKE FOR GEORGE WASHINGTON, a book pulled from distribution by the publisher, Scholastic. The why and the how and many other aspects have been the focus of many posts and exchanges. Here are a few of them. As professionals, we need to have these discussions and conversations. We need to be aware of what is happening in the field. and, I believe, we can have some of these same conversations with our students. So, here are the links I have managed to accrue. It is not exhaustive, so feel free to put other links in the comments section.
