Celebrating Diverse Books for PreK-12 Students
Pushing Back, Pushing Forward: Diverse Books for PreK-12
Our brand-new collection of lesson plans and resources, “Celebrating Diverse Books in K-12 Classrooms,” aims to meet the challenge of pushing back against the status quo of what we read and learn in school and help students explore all parts of their identity, whether it’s family dynamics, culture, language, race, gender, ability, beliefs, or socioeconomics. In this toolkit, you’ll find innovative learning resources from partners like First Book, Lee & Low Books, Re-Imagining Migration, and ADL. You’ll also find tips, ideas and professional development tools to help you diversify your teaching and adjust to a more culturally responsive pedagogical framework.
This new collection of resources for diverse books is just the beginning. It is a foundational collection of diverse texts we’ve compiled to better serve not only the community of teachers, paraprofessionals, SISP, librarians, and parents on SML, but the children, students and communities they serve.
