OJMCHE is extremely excited to host Jelani Memory, CEO of the A Kids Book About series and author of A Kids Book About Racism. During this 90 minute professional development, Jelani will talk about how he and the authors he works with approach writing about and discussing challenging and complex topics with kids as young as five years old! Further, educators will learn how these books can be used to address Senate Bill 664 (Oregon’s Holocaust and Genocide mandate) and have time to discuss how they might bring this learning into their classroom during small group breakout rooms. The session will conclude with time for questions and answers in the full group.
