Becoming the Leaders: The Power of Female Protagonists to Empower All Student Voices
Saturday – 12:30-1:45 – 370 D
We believe literature should reflect and honor the lives of all young people. Providing opportunities for all students to access a range of voices and stories in literature allows them to develop a broad understanding and appreciation of the human experience, be open to various ways of being and thinking, and to see themselves.
