Gene Luen Yang, the National Book Award-nominated author of American Born Chinese kicks off a new series of webinars for educators and librarians from CBLDF with "Teaching Tolerance & Understanding with Gene Luen Yang" at 4:00 p.m. PDT on May 23, 2019.
How can comics help students attain a broader view of the world and spark a lifelong love of reading? How can teachers and librarians respond to challenges to comics and overcome barriers to using them? Yang will draw from his career as a celebrated author, ambassador, and teacher to answer these questions and more during this webinar!
Participants in this webinar will engage on these topics and examine Yang's landmark work, American Born Chinese, taking away new lesson plans and classroom resources about identity, diversity, and intellectual freedom.
