Event Description

Title: Incorporating Multicultural Literature in the Classroom
Date: APRIL 30, 2020
Time: 4:00 PM- 5:30 PM
Location: ZOOM ONLINE
Instructor: Thuraya Zeidan

The purpose of this presentation, “Incorporating Multicultural Literature in the Classroom,” is to provide educators with lessons and strategies in order to incorporate multicultural learning in their classroom. It is not sufficient for educators to simply “throw in” a lesson that appears to have diverse characters, without being sure first that the text is authentic. Our students deserve to be and should be part of the learning process. This includes Black, Indigenous, People of Color, people with disabilities, refugees, immigrants, people who identify with LGBTQA+ and any other people who are marginalized and underrepresented in school curricula. My goal for participants is to take away at least one lesson that they can immediately incorporate in their classroom. Educators who teach middle and high school students would benefit most from this presentation but elementary school teachers can benefit also by taking some of the ideas and altering them to work for their students.
