Friends of the Festival

As a former high school science teacher and mother of three, I bring my love of books and reading into my classroom to spark the interest of and provide examples for preservice teachers. In addition, I work in a variety of classrooms using literature to generate questions that drive students to “find out more”! My own children, 16, 14 and 8 are book lovers above all else and are on the road to lifelong learning!

Scheduled events:
Challenging Stereotypes and Misconceptions through Books
Children's and young adult books can be used to challenge common misconceptions about the world and to question misunderstandings about the natural world and scientific principles. Both instructional strategies and titles of books will be shared as resources to facilitate dialogue about complex topics such as stereotypes, bias, diversity and social justice.
