Change the Narrative

Tuesday, April 30, 2024 – 01:00 PM Eastern Time

What does your classroom library offer?

We believe that literary texts have the power to

affirm students’ myriad identities and foster belonging. 

During this workshop, participants will discuss the impact of diverse narratives on building a sense of belonging, analyze current reading materials through an inventory audit, discuss classroom practices that promote a sense of belonging for all learners, and share ideas and strategies for overcoming challenges in implementing inclusive reading materials. Partner work, small group and whole group activities will lead these different discussions and participants will be provided with resources and questions to consider from the Learning for Justice frameworks. “Change the Narrative” aims to empower educators to be catalysts for positive change in the narratives of their students, fostering a sense of belonging for all.

*Participants will be able to identify positive characteristics and recommend areas for growth in their current literary selections.

*Participants will be able to articulate options for modifying less-than-desirable resources to include more diverse identities and perspectives.

*Participants will be able to cultivate a philosophy for choosing diverse resources that corresponds to the needs of their school community.

Join Julia Koch & Noemí Rodríguez as they offer strategies to analyze reading materials, promote critical literacy, and create inclusive learning environments. Elevating classroom libraries enables learners to see themselves in narratives and feel empowered by diverse stories!
