Join educators from all over the state in the online Summer 2024 IRC Book Club!  Choose one, two, or all three books!

Read, reflect on, and respond to Antiracist Reading Revolution: A Framework for Teaching Beyond Representation Toward Liberation by Sonja Cherry-Paul and/or Liven Up Your Library: Design Engaging and Inclusive Programs for Tweens and Teens by Julia Torres and Valerie Tagoe and/or Rooted in Strength: Using Translanguaging to Grow Multilingual Readers and Writers by Cecilia M. Espinosa and Laura Ascenzi-Moreno.  

Beginning June 23, educators will participate in online discussions for the next seven-weeks. With Antiracist Reading Revolution, the book will provide an actionable antiracist teaching framework and models how K-8 educators can create opportunities for transformative reading and discussions in classrooms. With Liven Up Your Library, participants will learn how librarians can positively effect change in areas like digital equity and inclusiveness, while creating powerful programming for middle and high school students. With Rooted in Strength, the book will help demonstrate how our emergent bilingual students who speak two or more languages in their daily lives thrive when they are able to use “translanguaging” to tap the power of their entire linguistic and sociocultural repertoires.

Participants who complete all assignments will be eligible to receive 15 PD clock hours for each book club.  Required for participation:
