This session will explore ways to use texts and images to help students (and teachers) explore their identities, confront their own biases, and develop empathy by exploring others' points-of-view. While the session materials will be geared toward ELA classrooms, they could easily be adapted for social studies classes or general character lessons. "Participants will engage in reading, writing, and discussion-based activities that can be recreated in the classroom to help students define their identities and examine the impact of their own biases in a non-confrontational way. Participants will leave with practical strategies for reading activities that help students explore alternative viewpoints to build empathy with authors, characters, and those around them."
