Most of us understand the importance of books in the classroom and have spent time and money building a classroom library. In this session, we will survey the books and materials we make available to children. How do our collections respectfully reflect the children’s own and others’ lives, languages, and histories? Do these texts and materials erase histories of people or provide insight into both universal and unique experiences and knowledge shared by particular communities? Leaders will leave this session with ideas for utilizing and strengthening any curriculum – books, materials or otherwise.
Virtual or in-person meeting to be determined.
This is one session in the Literacy Leadership group series. GET MORE INFORMATION ABOUT LITERACY LEADERSHIP GROUP >
