Books do not reflect society as it is. There is an absence of inclusive books. By inclusive literature we mean books that present a variety of skills, ages, ethnicities, genders, religions, sexual orientations and socio-economic groups. This course consists of three parts that focus on the concept of bibliodiversity and its relationship with inclusion.
In the first part, we reflected on the album addressed to children and the characteristics that make it, or not, representative of the ‘other’ in their particularity and universality. A set of titles is presented for analysis and collective reflection.
The second part aims to relate the album with reading mediation for children. Reading of an album, we raise questions about interpretation, its reading is expanded to another album and, based on the dynamics of the group, we consider how to apply this in the classroom or a library session.
The third part is dedicated to the book and teenagers. Titles are shared and approaches to narratives and perspectives are explored with a focus on the voice and identity of the reader and the characters.
Each part is three-hours-long and is independent from the other two. They can be performed sequentially or just one or two.
