Drawing on multicultural children's literature theory as a framework, the session will explore how archival collections can be intentionally mined for documents that mirror the diverse world in which we live. Attendees will engage each other in a collaborative exercise that unpacks the hidden stories within their own communities. Small group discussions and report outs to the entire group along with professional insights will build strategies for documenting and preserving those stories and effectively teaching them to K-12 students.
