Using Literature to Appreciate Diversity in the Classroom
The Crayon Box that Talked and The Color of Us

Providing a safe and welcoming classroom is vital to building relationships and community in the classroom. Getting to know students, celebrating who they are and where they come from, and providing needed social and academic supports are essential to student growth and achievement. Our students come from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds. It is up to educators to get to know and understand students.
During the first days of school, master teachers focus on building a classroom community. An effective way to do this is to use literature. These two lessons focus on diversity, inclusion, and building relationships of respect.
