We all know that diversity and inclusion are vital topics for our libraries and our democracy, but it can be hard to know how to approach this topic with young children and their families. In this workshop, Dr. Michelle H. Martin will provide attendees with strategies for using children’s literature to engage readers of all ages with questions of identity and difference. Dr. Martin will help participants increase their cultural competence for work with young people.

Participants will:

  • Learn to develop and ask culturally relevant and age-appropriate discussion questions about diverse literature.
  • Learn how to help young readers use literature for social justice.
  • Learn how to move from being an ally to being an accomplice for diversity.
  • Gain ideas for using diverse literature as a springboard for hands-on activities that deepen learning.
