"A Celebration of Diversity" was the theme of the Association of Teacher Educators' meeting in Los Angeles during February, 1993. Several thematic sessions presented instructional models to promote use of multicultural literature in classrooms. Kay Moore of California State University and John Smith of Utah State University discussed a joint project titled "Teachers as Readers of Multicultural Literature." Moore and Smith used guidelines established by the International Reading Association and the Association of American Publishers to organize a program where university faculty, student teachers, and supervising classroom teachers form a readers' book group to study multicultural literature. Volunteers from each university have established their own readers' book groups, on the basis of collaboratively developed goals.
