Don’t wait for a special holiday to include the histories, perspectives, values, and contributions of your diverse learners. With these diverse texts, you can provide positive and affirming messages for ALL students every day of the year! Included in this packet are mentor texts that reflect a wide range of cultural, ethnic, religious, linguistic, and socioeconomic identities (just like the ones in our classrooms) for every month. You will also get class book writing prompts, pages, and critical questions to increase your students critical, analytical, and problem-solving skills. Please include these texts along WITH your state mandated curriculum to give ALL students a chance to see themselves in their learning.
*Please note that the texts included are not meant to be taken as exclusive representations of any group of people. No group of people are a monolith!
