C.O.R.A Roll Call Week #5

Ali is hosting this week.
worducopia: Roll Call: Challenging Stereotypes

Have you seen Mitali Perkins' (author of The Secret Keeper, Monsoon Summer, and other books for young people) article in School Library Journal, called Straight Talk on Race: Challenging the Stereotypes in Kids' Books? The idea is to help teachers and librarians to guide kids in noticing how race is depicted in the books they read, but I think the issues are relevant for all of us, and all types of literature. As a fledgling writer, I have to admit it made my head spin a little bit. So, I've decided to borrow her idea for this week's roll call.

Join us. Leave at link at Wordcupia. We have gotten off with an impressive start. New bloggers are joining every week. Can't participate this week? Don't let that stop you from reading what's sure to be some informative and maybe provocative blogs.
