Mirrors Matter: Diverse Literature for Diverse Learners
As professionals, how do we ensure that we provide culturally relevant learning opportunities in our programs? In this training, you will identify the importance of creating a rich and diverse reading environment for the families in your program. At this workshop, we’ll learn how culturally relevant literature can support early literacy, and we’ll explore many new multicultural children’s books to share with parents and staff in your program. You’ll also have the chance to reflect on your practice with other parent education and family literacy professionals.
