|Books as Windows, Mirrors, and Sliding Glass Doors.
Lisa Stringfellow, Lower School English Faculty (Class I and II), Class I Co-coordinator, and Educational Technology Educator.
Join in an exploration of Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop’s metaphor of children’s books as “windows, mirrors, and sliding glass doors” and learn how this analogy is foundational to our literature study in English I & II. Just like Class II students, we’ll look at recent statistics regarding diversity in children’s publishing and discuss how the numbers impact their ability to find books that may mirror their own identities and experiences or allow them to peer through windows into the worlds of characters different than themselves. We’ll discuss excerpts of recently published books that our students love and share ideas about how adults can support the reading lives of children.
