Stories have the power to transform the way young people see themselves and others. Listen to Facing History in conversation with Julia Torres, librarian, educator, author, and co-founder of #DisruptTexts. We explore considerations for educators when selecting culturally responsive texts, the challenges educators face regarding book banning and censorship, and the intersections between librarianship and ELA instruction.
During the webinar, we hear from Julia Torres about #DisruptTexts, text selection, and critical literacy.
We are grateful to The Hammer Family for supporting the development of our on-demand learning and teaching resources.
