Who's Outside? Building an Anti-Racist Bookshelf
We strive for a vision in which all children have meaningful connections to the natural world, but what does our book collection say about who is part of this vision and in what role? Join Shelburne Farms place-based educator and professional learning facilitator Aimee Arandia Østensen and the UVM Tarrant Institute’s resident librarian Jeanie Phillips to explore how justice and equity show up (or don’t) on our classroom bookshelves. Together we’ll explore the intentional and unintentional messages about representation, stereotypes, and belonging that our bookshelves communicate. You’ll leave with tools and strategies to audit your own bookshelves.
Due to demand, we’re offering this second session of this program, which originally ran January 19th.
