As the site notes, Project I'm Ready has two primary goals. First, the organization seeks to "educate 21st century school librarians to serve in culturally diverse, high poverty rural areas of Oklahoma, serving Native American students." Second, the project hopes "to develop and disseminate culturally sensitive, digital curriculum and learning resources to improve K-12 pedagogy in the targeted areas." While many readers will not be working with populations in Oklahoma, the site is an excellent example of culturally relevant pedagogy. After perusing the About Project I'm Ready section, readers may like to select ENTER to see excellent videos of Cherokee artisans, as well as librarians speaking about their dedication to making information relevant to diverse populations. In addition, readers will find presentations, activities, and handouts dedicated to serving the Cherokee population of Oklahoma, in particular, and diverse populations in general.
