Educating Children and Young People for Joy and Justice: A Guest Post by Author and Teacher Ann Berlak

To prepare children and young people to participate in the construction of a more just and joyful future, we must tell them stories that make the invisible visible and unsettle what is taken for granted.”

I love everything about this article! In case you missed it, I wanted to share it on Vamos a Leer. It’s so relevant to many of the conversations we’ve been having here on the blog and with our local NM teachers.  I hope you’ll read the whole thing on the Latinxs in Kid Lit website!

  1. Katrina;Thanks for sharing  my blog re teaching for social justice.  Do you think Joelito belongs on your list of recommended books?  You are welcome to post the blog alongside the other blogs on vamos a leer if that is ok with the Latinix blog..  I’ve been doing  the marketing myself and thanks to the Latinix blog and the fact that the book was chosen as a California Reads selection by CTA it might be about to take off, but the first year the sales were very slow.  Ann

    • Hi Ann! Sorry for the delay in responding. We’re at the end of a couple of really busy weeks around our office. We would love to add Joelito’s Big Decision/La gran decisión de Joelito to our list of recommended books. I think it definitely belongs there. We’d also like to highlight the book and you as an author on the blog. I’ve got a couple of different ideas for some posts we could write, and/or share your post from the Latinxs in KidLit blog. It’s probably easier to talk about all of this via email. I’ve got a yahoo email address for you, is that the one I should use? Also, on a different note, I just came across some references to two other articles you’d written while doing some of my dissertation research. Sometimes it really does seem like a small world 🙂
