FREE Social Justice Education with Illustrated Books [Merna Hecht]

Picture books provide a diverse and abundantly rich resource for teaching social justice in primary grades through high school. In this class, we’ll look at books that honor the courage, resilience and humanity of people who have fought and continue to fight for social justice. We’ll explore books that address the consequences of war for young people, current concerns connected to asylum seekers, immigration, and racial justice—and we’ll discuss how to speak about them for the purpose of widening global understandings, increasing awareness and compassion, and inspiring young people to shape a more just and humane world.
