Having a wider variety of texts in a classroom library allows students to have more opportunities to connect to characters and experiences that are both similar and different from their own. By offering texts that span various cultures, races, identities, perspectives, genders, etc., readers can empathize with characters who have diverse backgrounds. However, having a wider range of multicultural texts also provides learners the chance to identify with characters who are similar to them. They are able to develop a greater understanding of their own identity as it relates to the world around them. Readers often learn about the world around them through literacy experiences, so it is important that these texts are truly reflective of our communities. I envision my learners using these texts during class read-aloud and independent reading to engage in deeper conversations about diversity and identity. With a greater understanding of the people in our community, learners will be able to grow in kindness, respect, and acceptance.
