Have you audited your collection to determine whether it is representative and inclusive? To what extent does it reflect the global community in which your learners will be citizens? Does each child see themself in your books? Does each child see the world? Which tools and guidelines can help answer these questions?

In this edWebinar, Michelle Luhtala will highlight strategies for collection development that focus on equity and representation. Please join Michelle and her guests, Megan Mabee and Anna Morris, who will share best practices and ideas.

This edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and librarians of grades 6-12. Michelle, Megan, and Anna will answer questions throughout the presentation.
