You have diverse books in your library. It's time to get them off of the shelf and use them intentionally to drive courageous conversations and broaden our students' world views. Not only do diverse books open up new worlds for our students, but they are crucial in understanding one another's stories. Presenters will define "bias" and participants will explore it's relevance in the elementary classroom. Examples of how children's literature is used to create opportunities to open up conversations will be shared.
