Words Have Power: Exploring the School Library's Role in Promoting Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Through Resources and Diverse Narratives


Jun 25, 2021 11:15am



Credits: None available.

Members: Free

Description

Today’s students are bombarded with “fake news,” polarizing ideology, and revised curriculum legislation. School libraries can provide students with resources and perspectives they may never otherwise encounter to help them navigate the world around them. Today's school library collections are charged with being microcosms of our society and incorporating equity, diversity, and inclusion. Join AASL President Kathy Carroll for a lively and candid conversation with Nic Stone, best-selling author of Dear Martin and Odd One Out, and Cicely Lewis, school librarian and founder of the Read Woke Challenge and Read Woke podcast, as they explore the necessity for diverse collections and authentic student inquiry in school libraries.
