Solutions Webinar – Using Culturally Responsive Children’s Books to Support Family Engagement

June 3 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

This session is brought to you in partnership with Raising a Reader.

What does it mean to be ‘culturally responsive’ and how do I include it in my work with families? This workshop will define what it means to be culturally responsive, including the investigation of family engagement practices and tools that acknowledge and appreciate the home cultures of all families. Children’s books will be investigated as an important tool to bridge the connection between educators and families. We will further explore how to select and build a library of books that represents the interest and diversity of the families. Finally, we will review Raising A Reader, a family engagement and early literacy program that has demonstrated positive results in changing family behaviors, as a case study for including cultural responsivity in your family engagement initiatives.

Participants will understand the importance of using culturally responsive children’s books as a tool to increase meaningful family engagement.
