Empathy Across the Curriculum: Using Picture Books to Promote Activism & Equity
Dr. Kathleen Olmstead, Dr. Jie Zhang, and Dr. Peter Kalenda collaborated with Librarian Dr. Logan Rath to present “Empathy Across the Curriculum: Using Picture Books to Promote Activism and Equity” at the New York Reading Association conference “Cultivating Genius” in Syracuse, NY.
The faculty and librarian team engaged participants in a discussion of practical ways to incorporate inclusive books across the curriculum using an equity and inclusion lens. Recent research, newly published children’s literature and resources that focus on fostering empathy through picture books as part of culturally relevant and sustaining practices were shared with session participants.
