“Diversity in the world is a basic characteristic of human society, and also the key condition for a lively and dynamic world as we see today.” This quote by Jintao Hu defines what the world should look like within the classroom.
My classroom consists of a diverse group of middle school students with many different needs who love to investigate, create and learn.
I have moved to a new school and am teaching at new grade levels. As a special education teacher, it is my job to provide opportunities for all students to learn in different ways to meet their diverse learning needs. It is important that my instruction includes audio, visual, and kinesthetic aspects enabling all students to access information. And, although my students have many learning challenges, they are eager to learn and become better students at math, science, social studies, and English language arts.
My students need to be able to see themselves when completing art projects for World History and English Language Arts. We are a diverse school and world, but imagine not being able to choose paper or color pencils that match your skin tone.
This project will allow students to participate in special projects and provide construction paper and large butcher paper to match the diversity of our classroom.
Students of color should be included in every activity in the classroom!
On top of that, students will be able to organize their materials and art projects with a book bin for every student. Students in special education need more support to be included in the classroom, and these book bins will help students stay organized!
Your generosity will help bring diversity and inclusion into every project!
