Celebrating Our Cuentos: Choosing and Using Latinx Literature in Elementary Classrooms

$ 33.46
Dr. Julia Lopez-Robertson makes a case for infusing our classrooms with literature by a range of Latin authors and illustrators-voices that reflect our students' experiences and provide a window into the cultures of people from Spanish-speaking countries and communities. She shows how to identify quality literature by checking for bias, stereotypes, and cultural and linguistic authenticity. From there, she explores how to put the literature to work in whole-class lessons, read-alouds, small-group discussions and writing projects to nurture engaged readers.
