Prof. Gonzalez’s Children’s Books Project featured in Berkeley News!


January 30, 2024

Ivan Natividad has written a fabulous news story for Berkeley News about the innovative class project designed by our very own Dr. Pablo Gonzalez. Students in Gonzalez’s Introduction to Chicano History spent the fall semester researching Chicanx history, and then used those histories to produce original narratives and illustrations in storybook form for elementary grade students. Those books are currently accessible digitally, and hard copies will be published for distribution to states and school districts where this history is openly banned.

Amazing on so many levels!
