I am presenting for the American Association of School Librarians Chapter Assembly because I do have resources, but I realized they are all over the map. So, to prepare for my presentation and to make the resources easy to find, I am putting them all in one place, right here in this post!
Morning! I am the Chair of the American Association of School Librarians Chapter Assembly and am planning a November 9 meeting where all 50 States send a representative. We were hoping to get an author or presenter to help share ideas for a Native American History month. We have zero budget, online meeting for about 15 min presentation…do you have any ideas or resources?
