This set of large stickers-like flashcards was created so you can  talk to our students about representation using the fabulous metaphor by Rudine Sims Bishop ♥️ of “windows, mirrors and sliding glass doors”.

The set has 17 visually appealing round cards that feature carefully chosen illustrations that play an important role in the conveying of meaning of each concept. They can be part of a word wall, you can insert them in Google slides to aid comprehension, or you can storytell using them as a scaffold for critical thinking. 

Because our curricula and praxis in general should be inclusive, inviting and culturally responsive. Language should be learned using  not only an ABAR lens but  also the core values of Culturally Responsive Teaching . As I mentioned before in my Instagram space, languages are people’s identifiers, they are part of people's identities and it’s extremely important to embark on a journey of teaching them that drifts away from mere mechanics and engages students in interculturality with a critical lens of equity and humanization. 

I’d love if you share with me your classroom activities

“Books are sometimes windows, offering views of worlds that may be real or imagined, familiar or strange. These windows are also sliding glass doors, and readers have only to walk through in imagination to become part of whatever world has been created or recreated by the author. When lighting conditions are just right, however, a window can also be a mirror. Literature transforms human experience and reflects it back to us, and in that reflection we can see our own lives and experiences as part of a larger human experience. Reading, then, becomes a means of self-affirmation, and readers often seek their mirrors in books.”
