Picture Books and Primary Sources

I enjoyed learning about how to use primary sources to enhance a picture book read aloud.  I appreciated how the presenter took us through a mock lesson and had us view a primary source, made the connection to the picture book and then read aloud a bit of the book to give us a taste of how to structure a lesson.  I'm using this strategy with my 4th graders right now.  I showed them an image of an advertisement for the Macy's parade from 1933 and asked what they noticed.  We had a discussion and them read Balloons Over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of the Macy's Parade.

Reminder that having diverse books isn't enough, we need to be bringing authors in of diverse backgrounds for our author visits.

Tough Topics: using literature to open difficult converstaions

This one had me in tears, hearing about the power that these author's stories had on children. I'm part of Project LIT which includes many books dealing with tough topics. I hope to spend more time on these stories with the kids. But I really want to get them into the hands of teachers who are still doing the "classics" - maybe through a teacher book club to dip our toes in and discuss how these titles can bring more to all of our students' lives.
