As you work to develop your culturally responsive classroom, TeachingBooks has tools to bring that effort to life with resources that open up access to diverse authors and titles.  In this session, we will explore tools to lighten your planning time across curricular areas while adding enriching resources for a breadth of diverse cultural experiences.  Whatever your role in a school may be, you will find easy-to-use materials like Meet-the-Author Recordings, the Diverse Books Toolkit, Cultural Representation Reflections, lesson plans, and much more to support your work.
