  • Bring Authentic Reading Practices Into The Classroom

    What do I read? How do I read?

    When do I read? Why do I read?

    Besides the act of reading, how else do I interact with and respond to the text?

  • Classroom LibrariesThe HEART of a Culture of

    Literacy

  • People have always had identity stories, but they have NOT always been reflected in literature.

  • So where do children who areBlackGay

    TransgenderMuslimAutisticDeaf

    ImmigrantsAdopted

    Dyslexic . . .

  • . . . go to learn abouttheir own experience?

  • In June of 2013, multicultural publisher Lee and

    Low Books put together a graphic illustrating

    that although 37% of the population of the

    United States are people of color, only 10% of

    childrens books published contained

    multicultural content. This gap has remained

    steady from 1994-201318 years!

  • In April 2014, a Twitter

    conversation about the lack of

    diversity in childrens literature

    inspired a movement.

    The hashtag

    #WeNeedDiverseBooks started

    trending and the non-profit

    organization WE NEED DIVERSE

    BOOKS was born.
