Reading Race: Using Multicultural Children’s Literature
to Teach Racial Literacies
May 2022 flyer.docx
“The goal of this presentation is to reimagine literacy teaching and learning in the 21st Century by using children’s literature texts to engage in critical conversations on race and racism. Dr. Greene conducts research across education contexts designed to (1) honor Black girls’ out-of-school literacy and language practices to bridge in-school teaching and learning practices and (2) support literacy teachers in developing critical pedagogical strategies designed to serve diverse populations.” This framework will support MHRC teachers and administrators to thoughtfully use children’s literature to support our own and students’ understanding of what it means to try and view the current times we are living in to forge better understanding of looking at the world from another perspective. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Greene who is an authority in this very important area of understanding the world through literature.
