Children often first encounter the broader world and other peoples, cultures, and ideas through the books they read and the stories they hear. Providing diverse literary experiences for children helps them better engage with the world, and for many of our students, see their own worlds reflected in the books they read. This program will examine critical issues in multicultural and global children’s literature; present strategies for incorporating diverse literature into the curriculum in meaningful ways; and introduce new authors and works that address global themes and culturally diverse perspectives.
