AASL National Conference & Exhibition 2017

From De-Silencing to Empowering Discussions about Race and Culture with Diverse Books

Nov 10, 2017 10:10am ‐ Nov 10, 2017 11:10am

Standard: $6.99
Members: $0.00

Description

Handing young people diverse books is a fine beginning, but what makes it empowering is meaningful, culturally relevant conversations about their literacy experience. How do facilitators deepen insights into these cultural journeys while feeling confident taking on difficult questions and considering their own roles and biases? Participants will learn to bring culture and race to the forefront of literary conversations, and acquire strategies to successfully facilitate authentic, contextualized discussions about race, culture, and diverse books.
