Social Justice Reading for Kids

Looking to broaden your classroom library? In its Social Justice Books project, the nonprofit Teaching for Change curates a deep selection of multicultural and social justice books for children and young adults. The books are chosen with an eye toward representation, peoples' histories, and storyline depth and quality. The website features booklists organized by topic (such as activism, family, and voting rights), reviews and rankings, and a video series on anti-bias books in the classroom. "Children's books teach children about who is important, who matters, who is even visible," states the project's guide to book selection. "Consequently, carefully choosing quality children's books is an indispensable educational and child-rearing task." Visit: https://socialjusticebooks.org/

PD on the Run

Something to listen to on the treadmill or your commute: Hallway Renegades is a "passion project" podcast created by three educators in the Albuquerque, New Mexico, school district. Each episode is about 30 minutes long and offers discussion and tips on trending instructional strategies and curriculum issues. Recent topics included SEL and distance learning, equity and critical dialogue, and blended learning for PD. For more info: https://bae5onthed.podomatic.com/
