2. The need for Culturally Responsiveteaching: culturally responsive teaching is goingto where the students are culturally and linguistically for the aim of bringing them where they need to be academically. It is a process for validating and affirming the indigenous cultures and languages of the students for the purposes of building and bridging them to academic success. Culturally responsive teaching is therefore meant for all students, not just African American students. The Center for Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning www.culturallyresponsive.org /resources 3. Teachers working together 4. Mem Fox Everything we read, from sexist advertisements and womens magazines to romance novels and childrens books,constructs us, makes us who we are, bypresenting our image of ourselves as girls andwomen, as boys and men. We who write childrens books, and we who teach through literature, need to be sure we are opening doors to full human potential, not closing them. 5. "One of the major goals of my work and my life is to help foster understanding and respect for each otherwhatever our nation, race, or genderand for all life upon this Earth." Joseph Bruchac 6. Five Phase Approach to Multicultural Literature(Norton, 2005) Phase One: TraditionalLiterature Identify distinctions among folktales, myths and legends.Identify ancient stories that have common features and that are found in many regions.Identify types of stories that dominate a subject.Summarize the nature of oral language, the role of traditional literature, the role of an audience and the literary style. 7. Phase Two: Traditional Tales from One Area Analyze traditional myths and other story types and compare findings with those in Phase One. Analyze and identify values, beliefs and themes in the traditional tales of the region. 8. Phase Three: Historical Nonfiction Analyze nonfiction for the values, beliefs and themes identified in traditional literature. Compare adult autobiographies and childrens biographies. (if possible) Compare information in historicaldocuments with autobiographies and biographies. 9. Phase Four: Historical Fiction Evaluate historical fiction according to the authenticity of the conflicts, characterizations, settings, themes, language, and traditional beliefs.Search for the role traditional literature plays in historical fiction. Compare historical fiction with autobiographies, biographies, and historical information. 10. Phase Five: Contemporary Literature Analyze the inclusion of any beliefs andvalues identified in traditional literature and nontraditional literature. Analyze contemporary characterization and conflicts. Analyze the themes and look for threads that cross the literature. 11. FromAgainst BordersHazel Rochman The best books break down borders. They surprise us - whether they are set close to home or abroad. They change our view of ourselves. They extend that phraselike meto include what we thought was foreign and strange. 12. Hazel Rochman people dont come to Americablank.Their memories and stories and poetry stay with them and enrich us all, even as new experiences change them, and they change us. 13. Celebrations And Awards 14. http://www.ncte.org/action/aari/packetinfo Hosting a Read-In can be as simple as bringing together friends to share a book, or as elaborate as arranging public readings and media presentations that feature professional African American writers.

April 30 17. UNESCO Each year, September 8th marks the celebration of literacy and learning internationally. International Literacy Day (ILD)was proclaimed by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) on November 17, 1965 and was first celebrated in 1966 .Literacy is more than reading and writing it is about how we communicate as a society. It is about social practices and relations, about knowledge, language and culture. (United Nations) 18. The Power of Women's Literacy was the theme chosen for ILD 2010. ABC News 19. Ralph Waldo Emerson: Thought is the blossom, language is the bud, action is the fruit behind it. 3 Stage TransformativeTeaching/Learning Model Stage 1: Information Teacher delivers information = THE BOOK Stage 2:Integration Teacher and students interact to create relevancy = EXPERIENCE Stage 3:Transformation Teacher and students interact to create solutions to identified local or global needs = ACTION 20. The goal for students at any grade level is to naturally move through a world that recognizes, celebrates and respects people and culture from all over the world. Make sure that each one of your students can find themselves in the pages of a book in your classroom library. Eventually the goal is one of not talking about global literature, or inserting it into the curriculum. The goal is to fully live in a global society. Using quality global literature is a starting point for both learning and living. Marian J. McKenna Breaking Boundaries with Global Literature 21. Books for extendedservice learning opportunities 22.

Winter Home We build our beds inside this barn, with shreds of cloth, old rags, twine. A room where we can winter-dine to chime of ice, by windows full of snowflake art.
