Join the UVM Tarrant Institute's resident librarian Jeanie Phillips and Shelburne Farms place-based educator and professional learning facilitator Aimee Arandia Østensen as we explore how justice and equity show up (or don't) on our classroom bookshelves. We strive for a vision in which all children have meaningful connections to the natural world, but what does our book collection say about who is part of this vision and in what role?
Together we'll explore the intentional and unintentional messages about representation, stereotypes, and belonging that our bookshelves communicate. Leave with tools and strategies to audit your own bookshelves.
