All students have journeys to share, but some have traveled far and endured overwhelming experiences. Immigration is one of the many realities that books need to reflect in order to have educational environments that are culturally responsive. How can we do this? Join us to discuss titles like Mamá the Alien/ Mamá la extraterrestre (from author René Colato Laínez) as we explore immigration in children’s literature and the fears and dreams of leaving home behind to begin a new life. Learn about the author’s process behind this uplifting bilingual book and come away with culturally responsive activities for your literacy block.
