#GetLit for Culturally Relevant Libraries


Christine Bediones


Samantha Kohl


Finding books that reflect the identities and lived experiences of all students in our classrooms is hard. But it shouldn’t be. During this campfire, find your community among educators, literature lovers, and champions of diversity, equity, and inclusion who believe an equitable education is a culturally relevant education. We’ll discuss how to tackle shared challenges, such as time and buy-in, so that you can fill your classroom library with books that are culturally relevant to your students.
