Zoe Weil is the president and co-founder of the Institute for Humane Education, which works in partnership with Antioch University to provide the Humane Education MEd, MA, EdD, and Graduate Certificate. In addition to helping develop much of the curricula for the humane education graduate programs, Zoe co-facilitates the summer residency course for students each year.
The new edition of her book, Claude and Medea: The Hellburn Dogs, was just released on May 2. This adventure story encourages young readers (9 – 13) to think about human kindness, animal protection, and having the courage to make a difference. It’s not only a fun read for kids; it’s a humane education tool for teachers who want to bring critical, creative, and ethical thinking to middle-grade students. The Institute for Humane Education hopes that it will serve readers in its efforts to teach for a more just, humane world.
“Claude & Medea is inspired by my work as a humane educator and animal advocate. I have seen what learning about animals, the environment, and real-world issues can spark in students, and I wanted to capture that spark in a fun and approachable way.” ~Zoe Weil
