Introduction to LibGuide
This term, you will be reading four texts, each rooted in the stories of underrepresented or marginalized voices.
You will find those four topics represented by tabs in this LibGuide. Under each tab are book recommendations that cover roughly the same territory. These titles have been arranged by intended audience: Picture Books (grade PreK-3), Middle Grade (grades 4-7), and Young Adult (grades 8-12).
Each title is linked to the book's record in the CRC catalog, where you can read the book's summary.
Although the Curriculum Resource Center is closed due to the pandemic, many of these titles are available as ebooks from public libraries and publishers. Please contact Joe Prince if you have difficulty finding any of these titles.
