About This Webinar

Join Lee & Low Books and Paralympic gold medalist Patty Cisneros Prevo for Centering Disabilities in the Classroom. Senior Literacy Manager Katie Potter will moderate the conversation with Patty as she discusses the development of her nonfiction picture book Tenacious: Fifteen Adventures Alongside Disabled Athletes, the difference between person-first and identity-first language, and how to select quality texts that reflect the lived experiences of young people. Participants will come away with realistic techniques on how to create a classroom community that’s inclusive of all learners, as well as ready-to-implement activities to pair alongside Tenacious.

This free, for-credit webinar is just one of many running as part of Share My Lesson's Summer of Learning series. Register now to watch them live or later on demand.
