I am trying to bring more ‘social justice’ literature into my kindergarten classroom this year.I am also going to use a lot of photography with my kids, giving them the camera, and asking for photos from home. I haven’t read them all yet, and would love comments from you about them and add your own titles! Here are some titles I have gathered (I found a most of them on Amazon.ca or in my school library):
Social Justice Booklist (.xls) (Excel file so you can sort them by topic/author/title)
At a recent workshop in Melfort, participants filled out a review template on various titles on this list. I CHALLENGE YOU TO DO THE SAME! If you use the template given (in word format) and want to submit it, just attach it to an email c/o Kim at email@example.com and we’ll post it! I hope you can use the information in these reviews to help you choose books on social justice in your classroom! Thanks to the participants for their reviews!
