Spotting Stereotypes in Storybooks

A workshop by Claire Leunissen, Founder and Director of Xenolearn

Spotting Stereotypes in Storybooks teaches educators how to recognize racist, stereotypical or negative representations in storybooks. We invite participants to join an interactive lesson, filled with reflection exercises, group discussions, and practice. Participants will practice identifying problematic stereotypes in children’s books, how to talk about both negative and positive representations, and how to balance diverse stories and affirming stories. Parents will finish the workshop feeling confident and equipped with the right tools to share positive and affirming representations of BIPOC communities during story time.

Perfect For Elementary School Teachers!
