My Students

The students at our school-wide Title 1 school are a diverse bunch of children. What I enjoy most about these great students is their curiosity of each others cultures. Within the population of our students we have Latino, Asian, Russian, Bosnian and refugees from around the world. While visiting the library the children inevitably will ask for a book(s) about their homeland, while others will want to learn where their new friend came from. When they find the perfect book the two are off to explore, experience and learn about each other and their cultural.

My Project

The books selected will enhance the library's multicultural collection. Our library is a place where students enjoy visiting and finding a just right book. Students visit the library once a week for a short lesson and checking out books. These multicultural books will supplement materials used for our cultural mini lesson.

With these new books, the students will be able to choose from a variety of books that will allow them to read independently about their own uniqueness.

Students will also be able to find a books that represents their own cultural. When students have access to information about other cultural it builds tolerance and diversity. In today's world we all need to understand diversity and tolerance.
