It is up in the air right now whether or not school will begin in early August with in person learning or distance learning. Whether I am teaching in person or virtually, I love to link literature to each of my STEM related lessons. I usually start each lesson with a book and then have my students complete a STEM or design related challenge that ties into the book. Through examining my current library of STEM related books, I realized that the people and characters in my books were not an accurate reflection of the diversity of the students I teach. If I want my students to continue to reach their full potential through my instruction it is important that they see themselves in the books that I read with them. These books will help them to do that regardless of where they are learning. I will be able to either read the books virtually or in person and help my students learn about and connect to real people in STEM careers, or innovative characters who solve real world problems.
