Creating a Culturally Sensitive Classroom Library.
Brassell, Danny
Reading Teacher, v52 n6 p651-53 Mar 1999
Describes how a second-grade inner-city class in California, 80% Spanish-speaking and suffering from a severe lack of books and textbooks, became a class of authors, making books themselves. Relates how their classroom library grew to over 400 books in six weeks, with children becoming avid, passionate readers and writers in the process. (SR)
