||This webinar will explore the concept of mirror and window books as a critical component of a diverse school library collection. Additionally, participants will examine the concept of the single story, such as Christopher Columbus. They will deconstruct this single story and identify sources for obtaining multiple perspectives of the story. Participants will discover how to analyze their collection for diversity, locate sources for easily adding mirror and window books and examine ways to incorporate instructional technology. Participants will leave the session feeling empowered to support the turquoise wedge by curating resources, both print and digital, that reflect and value diversity.
