Exploring Diversity in Picture Books

This program will now be happening online. 
 (3 PDPs) In this workshop we will examine how to use picture books to provide “mirrors and windows” that reflect readers’ identities and open their eyes to the world beyond their lived experiences.

A limited number of workshop spots are free for preschool teachers and elementary teachers in Title 1 Schools through The Carle Community Fund. Scholarships are awarded at random and offered on a quarterly basis. Application deadline for spring workshops is March 15. Click here to apply.
