We at SEED were delighted when author Grace Lin recently gave a TEDx talk on "The Windows and Mirrors of Your Child's Bookshelf" which for us resonates with SEED Founding Co-director Emily Style's "Curriculum As Window and Mirror."
As Lin shares, "Here's the thing about your window. When the light hits it just right, you don't just see the world outside. You can also see your reflection, so the window becomes a mirror. That's also what a book does."
Windows and mirrors is a powerful analogy that continues to shed light on the importance of diverse books, classroom materials, and perspectives!
