Own Voices Authors, N-Q, Gr. 3-4 Shelf

Teachers College Reading and Writing Project Classroom Library

By Lucy Calkins, Teachers College Reading & Writing Project

TCRWP is offering the Own Voices Authors collections in levels N–Q as a way to help classroom teachers improve representation in their own classroom libraries. The gold standard of inclusive book curation highlights books that are written by authors who share identities and experiences with the characters or topics they are writing about, sometimes referred to as <strong><em>#ownvoices </em></strong>authors. But “own voices” is not merely a social media hashtag; it is a movement within children’s literature that is actively working to shine a spotlight on a variety of voices.

Full Description

The gold standard of inclusive book curation highlights books that are written by authors who share identities and experiences with the characters or topics they are writing about, sometimes referred to as #ownvoices authors. But “own voices” is not merely a social media hashtag; it is a movement within children’s literature that is actively working to shine a spotlight on a variety of voices. To this end, TCRWP is offering the Own Voices Authors collections in levels N–Q as a way to help classroom teachers improve representation in their own classroom libraries. The curation team worked intensively to curate collections that include authors who are uniquely positioned to write with accuracy and care about characters who are BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and those who are living with disabilities—authors and characters who have been historically underrepresented in children’s literature and in classroom libraries. 


This shelf includes 46 titles and 46 books.
