Our conversation with Dr. Debbie Reese casts a light on the ways in which books about Native people often reinforce stereotypes and cause harm to Native students. This episode of CLTV gives background and depth to her piece written for the journal Language Arts, where Reese explains how teachers can choose texts that support accurate representations of Native communities, and how teachers can develop a critical lens to better select and use curriculum materials in their classrooms and schools.
