Session 1 (9:00-10:00 am) - The Evolution of African American Children’s Literature

Come with us on a journey of African American Children’s Literature from board books, to picture books, to chapter books, and comics. We will begin our journey in the 1960’s and then end in present day 2021. Let’s explore the timeline together as we take a trip on this literary adventure.

Facilitators: Ashmin Small and Channa Halmon, Quality Coaches with CCR&R.

Session 2 - (10:15 - 11:15 am) Supporting Child Success During Difficult Times

Children and adults need to feel safe and connected to access their executive skills to learn and exhibit positive behaviors. This becomes even more imperative during times of crisis. This session will provide strategies to support a “felt sense of safety” to promote learning and positive behavior.

Facilitator: Elandriel Lewis, Manager of Early Learning and Training for the United Way of Greater Nashville
