First Fall Event Reminder...and Dates for Winter/Spring Events!

This is a reminder that you still have time to register for our first event of the year!

Walking and Talking:

A Conversation About Culturally Informed Literacy Instruction

Join ACARC as we walk and talk or sit and discuss the article “What Does Culturally Informed Literacy Look Like?”. This article and Teaching Tolerance’s Tool for selecting diverse literature will drive our conversation. (Articles linked below.) ACARC leaders will support discussions as we delve into the impact of our own identity, discuss how to better know and understand our students, and take steps to transform our classroom libraries. Participating educators are required to read the article “What Does Culturally Informed Literacy Look Like?” and use Teaching Tolerance’s Tool to examine books in their own classroom prior to the meeting (this is part of the 3 CTLE credits). We will exercise our brains and bodies with thoughtful conversations that will elevate our thinking about diverse literature.
