In my district, we will be out tomorrow for a teacher training day. After six years of giving a "100 Great Books" talk, I'm venturing out and doing one on diversity in middle grade literature.
The slide presentation seems to have loaded a bit awkwardly, with some bits cut off, but the links to resources still are available.
Obviously, this doesn't make quite as much sense if you aren't in the session, but I hope that this will be useful to some people.
Later note: I should have credited Mitali Perkins for the phrase "Are books windows or mirrors?"
I will mention this in my presentation, and it's such a great way to look at books!
