Understanding Diversity Through Novels and Picture Books goes beyond the usual multicultural lists and looks at the wide expanse of the diversity of cultures and lifestyles impacting children's lives in America today and identifies good books to have in library collections for them to read. Included are annotated titles with discussion questions from all of the identified cultures and subcultures and annotated teacher/librarian resources, print- and Web-based, as well as an excellent list of topical annotated journal articles. Grades 4-8. Knowles and Smith examine current research on diversity and multiculturalism. They move away from the traditional aspects of multicultural education (food, fashion, folktales, festivals, and famous people) to a focus on novels and pictures books, and realistic fiction to show children with diversity issues that there are others in similar positions. The issue of authenticity (whether the author of the book should be of that culture or merely familiar with the culture) is discussed. Topics include: Ethnicities (Asian, Latino/Hispanic, African/Black, Native American, White/European, Bi/Multiracial), Exceptionalities, Ageism, Socioeconomic Status, Sexual Orientation, Gender, and Religion. The authors provide this valuable resource for libraries, schools, and communities that wish to utilize literature to help diverse students walk in the shoes of others and to match books to children and young adults to heighten understanding and acceptance. Grades 4-8.

While it is true that children from military families live unique and interesting lives, it is also true that they face many challenges and special circumstances that civilian children and families dont experience. These can include gaps in school attendance and learning due to frequent moves, being separated from a parent who has been deployed, and a sense of isolation in the midst of a civilian community. This comprehensive and evidence-informed guide introduces pre- and inservice teachers to this population and provides essential tools to help minimize the impact of military life on student learning. It addresses issues such as: Frequent transitions between schools, gaps in academic progress, social adjustment, parental deployments, and trauma or tragedy. And it shows how practices already being used in your school can be adapted to ease the transition for military students, and it also introduces original strategies, such as: A Hero Wall honoring members of the military, friendship or memory gardens, military Appreciation events, writing letters or making care packages for deployed service members.

Children develop their feelings toward other cultures and individuals largely through the ideas presented to them by parents and teachers. One good way is to show them respectable and accurately portrayed literary characters from many U.S. cultures. Over 200 selections from children's literature, with plot and character synopses, feature Americans who can serve as role models in overcoming cultural stereotypes. Target activities (role playing, writing assignments, etc.) reinforce the multicultural concepts. The selections are divided into five areas: African American, Asian American, European American, Latino American, and Native American.

Much has happened since 1992,the publication date of this text's third edition, to change schools and school libraries. The publication by AASL of Information Power: Building Partnerships for Learning with its emphasis on the collaborative teaching role of school media specialists, the new emphasis on information literacy, the proliferation of new technologies and the introduction of the Internet have all had huge effects on the administration of a school library media center. This book encompasses all of these additions while still covering the basics of administration, facilities management, selection of materials, staffing, budgeting, organization etc. There is much that is all new, all chapters have been reviewed and updated and has been carefully reviewed to bring it inline with the school libraries of the twenty-first century. The author, Dr. Betty J. Morris, is a professor of school library media in Georgia.

For introductory courses in Early Childhood literacy. A well-known early childhood author joins with a literacy expert to offer a brand new approach to early literacy in preschool, leading into kindergarten reading. New research on how literacy emerges is put to use in chapters on setting up a literacy-friendly learning environment, music and art as natural languages, strengthening finger muscles for writing through 3-dimensional art, cooking, and woodworking, developing visual representational skills ( a la Reggio Emilia), developing the important sense of story sequence through role-plays, story reenactments, and flannel board stories. Teachers are asked to make a paradigm shift in regard to their opinion of children's books as mere sources of entertainment. This text uses picture books as keys to unlocking an entire curriculum of literacy activities, with cultural book characters like real children, leading preschool and kindergarten listeners into learning centers filled with exciting literacy activities for them to pursue on their own. (teacher-oriented) are discussed along with suggestions on how and when to use each. A discussion of the new early childhood curriculum standards suggests ways to incorporate them in early childhood classrooms.
