Classroom Resource Collection

Ten items I will use in my future classroom to foster an inclusive learning environment for all students.

Same, Same but Different Book

This book is about Elliot, who lives in America, and Kailash, who lives in India. By exchanging letters and pictures, they learn that they both love to climb trees, have pets, and go to school. I chose this resource, because it will help my students understand that we all may look different, but we often have things in common too. By reading this story to my students, it will help them to support the diversity they experience among their classmates.

Poor Students, Rich Teaching Informational Resource

In this informational resource, it defines mindsets essential for reaching economically disadvantaged students and shares corresponding strategies for overcoming adversity and ensuring college and career readiness, regardless of socioeconomic status. I chose this book, because it's important for teachers to understand the impact of poverty on their students, and I will use this resource to implement helpful strategies in my classroom so every child is able to learn no matter their family's economic status.

Anti-Bullying Squad

This video highlights how bullying is a behavior that hurts, harms or humiliates another person. It discusses how anybody can be a bully or be bullied, and how bullying can be in person or online. I chose this resource because bullying is a very common yet harmful occurrence in schools. I would play this for my students so they have a better understanding of bullying and how to stand against it.

What Educators Need to Know About Immigration Law Book

This book is a great resource for teachers, because it answers many questions that educators have regarding immigrant children and their rights. I would read this book in order to gain a better understanding of immigration law, which can then allow me to better help and teach my immigrant students. I chose this resource, because it would clear up misconceptions and provide great insight about immigration.

This brochure provides information about how parents can help build their child's reading and language skills during the early years of life. I chose this resource, because ELL students may struggle learning the English language, but it's vital to learn because without the ability to read, children can't succeed in school. I would share this resource with any parents and families of my ELL students.

Talking to Children About Race and Ethnicity | Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences Video

This video discusses the importance of talking to children about race and how to go about doing so. I chose this resource, because there is always going to be diversity of race in the classroom and society, so I want my students to understand that and respect those of a different race or ethnicity. I will watch this video and share it with other adults to gain insight on how to have beneficial conversations with children on racism.

Diversity Ninja Children's Book

This book is about Diversity Ninja, who shows us that regardless of differences in race, gender, ability, background, clothing, language spoken, or skin color, we are all part of the human race. I chose this book, because it's important for students to understand how to overcome prejudice and racism and practice diversity, equality, and inclusion. I will read this book a loud to my class and have activities and discussions with the students.

Build Classroom Community and Culture Activities

This activity set helps to build a positive classroom community and culture. I chose this resource, because it helps students better understand culture and allows them to get to know one another better. I will use these resources towards the beginning of the school year, so the children feel safe and ready to learn in my classroom.

The Power of belief -- mindset and success | Eduardo Briceno | TEDxManhattanBeach

This video shows how mindset, or the understanding of intelligence and abilities, is key. I chose this video, because the way we understand our intelligence and abilities deeply impacts our success. I would not only watch this video myself, but share it with parents and other adults in the community, so that we can display a growth mindset to our students and children.

Deconstructing Privilege: Teaching and Learning as Allies in the Classroom Book

This book explores the best practices for effective teaching and learning about various forms of systemic group privilege such as that based on race, gender, sexuality, religion, and class. I chose this book, because it's important for teachers to understand and address issues of privilege in the classroom. I will use the practical tips in this book to help deconstruct privilege in my own future classroom.
