Children's literature has the power to leave lasting impressions. Books play a critical role in students' lives to teach, reflect, transform, and inspire. In this webinar, we will explore how to use children's literature to introduce and deepen concepts of identity, diversity, bias and social justice in the classroom. Participants will learn about excellent book examples, examine development ages and stages in relation to anti-bias concepts, consider literature-based teaching ideas, and reflect on the recent surge in book banning and how educators can respond.
