ON-DEMAND PD WEBINAR:
Own Voices: The Power of Representation, Culture and Identity in the Books Kids Read
Representation matters. Whether in a beautiful read aloud, an #OwnVoices precisely leveled book, or an informational text that provides multiple perspectives of history, children to see both themselves and others in the pages they read. Benchmark Education and Reycraft Books invite you to discover more about the movement to amplify the voice and vision of all children.
In this webinar, award-winning author Joseph Bruchac will present the power of authentic storytelling through his experiences as an Indigenous author and explore how stories can provide a mirror for students underrepresented in children’s literature.
