En la Clase: The Pura Belpré Award

I recently came across this wonderful article from Young Adult Library Services that highlights the Pura Belpré Award and Cultivating Latino Cultural Literacy.  If you’re unfamiliar with the Pura Belpré Award you really should read this article by Jaime Campbell Naidoo.  It’s full of great information on the award and different ways to use the award winning books in your classroom.  Naidoo examines how the Pura Belpré Award winners help us to bring topics like Latino history, daily experiences of Latino youth, and great lives of Latinos into our classrooms.  Definitely take the time to check it out!
