If you could recommend a book to K-12 teachers to use to teach civil rights topics to your students what would it be? What book or digital resource would you recommend to help students make sense of the Confederate Flag takedown this summer? Is there a book or resource that you know of that might help students process events such as the Charleston church massacre?
Please add to the #CharlestonBib, a crowd sourced resource being compiled to benefit school librarians, teachers and students across our state and nation.
Add your resource here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1BUb82RJHHqjTfDLaaQihfJxz2vMjvlTNG3bHJsX1Qwc/edit
Below is a partial listing of the titles submitted so far by school librarians, authors, public librarians and more. Click and fill out the form to add your own title or contact Jennifer Tazerouti at email@example.com or Dr. Karen Gavigan at firstname.lastname@example.org
Presentations about this SCASL-sponsored project will be made at the conferences of the South Carolina Library Association (SCLA), the North Carolina Association of School Librarians (NCSLMA), and the Virginia Association of School Librarians (VAASL) this fall, as well as our SCASL conference this spring.
THANK YOU to all of the teachers, school librarians and authors who have contributed to this list so far! Your names will be listed on the final publication of the bibliography and at the conference presentations that we will be making.
Please share the link to our crowd sourced bibliography and urge others to participate. Our Twitter hashtag is #charlesonbib.
