Postponed Lunch and Learn! Comprehending Cultural Wealth: A Toolkit for Reading Picture Books
Thursday April 27, 2023 – In Person at TCNJ

This workshop will explore Yosso’s concept of the 6 forms of cultural capital and demonstrate how to make those ideas kid-friendly for younger readers. The presenter will model how even the youngest readers can read with a critical lens by looking for examples of cultural wealth during read-alouds or independent reading. For older readers and adolescents, these concepts can be used to challenge picture or chapter books that have a deficit lens toward linguistic and cultural diversity. Participants will engage with hands-on activities to experience how using this toolkit can lead to richer classroom conversations. They will also get resources to build a cultural wealth text set around a variety of larger thematic units.

Presenter: Dr. Anne Peel, Associate Professor Literacy of Literacy, Department of Special Education, Language and Literacy. Anne taught high school English for 14 years in public schools in Philadelphia and New Jersey and continues to maintain collaborations with multiple districts across New Jersey, providing professional development support in literacy instruction. Her scholarship has been published in English Journal, Journal of Language and Literacy Education, and Literacy among others, and she has presented her research at numerous national and international conferences. She was awarded the Edward Fry Graduate Fellowship in Literacy from Rutgers University.
