Presenter: Beverly Rowls Join me as we read, listen to, perform, discuss, and understand this verse novel. We will bring this genre alive for young people who may know little about the Panama Canal. The building of the Panama Canal has been considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, yet the stories of tens of thousands of black and brown people who died to make it possible, have been left untold. Their lives and stories matter. Beverly Rowls has provided professional development support for literacy instruction to Chicago and Illinois area teachers for over twenty years. An avid reader and student, Beverly studies both historical events and informational texts that she uses to craft relevant and motivational curricula for both youth and adults. In addition, she finds reading literature from diverse cultures to be both fulfilling and enlightening. Part of the CenterSpace Young Adult Literature Workshop Series 2 CPDUs Will be Given
