Hear from authors, librarians and fellow teachers and make children’s and young adult books on East Asia a part of your teaching tool kit. Discover how authors do research for their books and how book titles and cover illustrations are selected. Gain confidence in making close readings and exploring character motivations with your students. Find out how to authenticate the reliability of the material and learn about new databases on children’s literature. Using three separate books on East Asia, including Freeman Award winners, teachers will examine three different genres with frameworks to support students’ critical thinking and inquiry.
