Learn about texts and resources to help you create a more inclusive secondary ELA curriculum!
Webinar Description: As part of this webinar, you will learn how to use the Diverse Texts guidance to help you to create a more inclusive curriculum in your secondary ELA Classroom, and how to start a conversation in your classroom, school, and district. Educators have a responsibility to diversify the representation in the texts that students read in their classrooms. There is a world of diverse texts available that will give a broader viewpoint of the world as well as allow for and celebrate greater representation. Each of the books in the Diverse Texts Guidance chart feature protagonists and characters that are a part of underrepresented groups and will benefit your reading instruction. There are also non-fiction texts that represent diverse voices and diverse perspectives of history. Additionally, there are resources to help educators diversify their curriculum.
Please feel free to review the guidance beforehand as we will be spending time with it during this webinar: https://www.azed.gov/standards-practices/secondary-literacy-middlehs (under the blue bar that says "Diverse Texts")
