Diversity and Inclusion Books
Help me give my students these books to support their learning about diversity, inclusion, and connections to human kind.
My students live in a beautiful small town community in the Rocky Mountains where art and outdoor recreation is our primary lifestyle. They come from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. Despite the many opportunities for art and outdoor recreation, some students do not get these opportunities outside of school. For some students, school is the primary place where they are offered consistent meals, expectations, and nurturing. This is due to the high cost of living and the need for many parents to work several jobs. The majority of my students (>90%) are white, non-Hispanic.
My students come to school happy and eager to learn.
My students love to learn about the world outside of our small community and exploring and learning about the natural world. The students in my classroom form new friendships each day and encourage one another to strive to do their best.
With the current Black Lives Matter movement I am doing my part to learn more and to take opportunities to create change. One way I can contribute is to offer my students - who live in a predominantly white community - opportunities that promote diversity education, inclusion, and connection to all of humankind.
By donating to this project, you will be supplying my classroom with a variety of fiction and nonfiction books which will engage learners in conversations about inclusion, books about understanding differences, and books that expose students to a variety of cultures.
As a classroom teacher I have seen the power of stories for children. Each day we read books aloud and it is the best part of our day. These books have lasting impacts on my classroom culture, students understanding of the world, and their application of social skills.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
