Creating an Antiracist Classroom - Ms. Espinoza, 2nd grade
Help me give my students inclusive books in their library. They need books with characters that are of all cultures so they grow to be antiracist and anti-bias, fighting for social justice and equality for all.
I am requesting a numbers of books that will allow me to do more culturally responsive teaching. Students will be able to see themselves in the diverse characters throughout these books. They will be able to relate to them or grow to be more empathetic towards the characters and people in their world like them. Students will learn within the context of culture. These books will also help them be more emotionally, mentally, and physically healthy. Students are able to make connections through these books and really understand our ever changing society and how they fit in it. With these books, learning can be more student centered as they hold discussions around the ideologies and stories held in these books.
