Culturally Diverse Literature
Three of this week’s resources (Chapter 1 of the course text, “10 Quick Ways to Analyze Children’s Books for Racism and Sexism”, and “Criteria for Evaluating Multicultural Materials”) discuss a vital consideration for book selection: a respectful and accurate depiction of cultural diversity. As you have learned, the mere inclusion of multiple ethnicities does not qualify a book as a quality example of culturally diverse literature. However, there are myriad criteria that you can use to assess how effectively and fairly an author has represented diversity. Reflect on what you have learned about:The many ways to think about diversity and cultureThe depth and breadth of culturally diverse literatureThe determinants of quality in culturally diverse literatureThe role of culturally diverse literature in the lives of children and adolescentsBy Day 3
With these thoughts in mind, post your responses to the following questions:Do you agree or disagree with the authors of the text that culturally diverse literature can be a powerful influence on children and adolescents? Substantiate your thinking with examples from both your readings and personal experiences.Based on your readings of this week, what does the following quote mean to you “Study after study affirm that there are not enough diverse books available” (Galda & Cullinan, 2017, p. 27 ) What does that quote mean to you? Why is it important the children have books that contain information about diversity? What can you do to be sure children learn about diversity through literature? See Figure 1.6 in the Galda & Cullinan text, p. 35.How can you select culturally diverse literature materials for children?
