Linda Sue Park: “Exploring Family Heritage”

My latest article in Library Sparks is out in the November 2007 issue. If you know Linda Sue Park‘s books at all, you know I had lots to dig into when considering classroom extensions. I finally decided to take a global perspective on her work. Even though she’s published in just about every genre–historical, fantasy, contemporary, not to mention her poetry and picture books!–they all draw from her Korean heritage. My article jumps off from there, giving ideas of how to celebrate diversity and family heritage in the classroom.
