Interactive Read-Aloud Celebrating Diversity

Our new series includes carefully curated trade books that have been selected to represent and support diverse classrooms. We have paired high-quality literature with lesson plans for read-aloud instruction that will extend and support comprehension instruction. These books will also provide teaching opportunities to spark conversations and highlight the positive effects of living in a diverse community—in the classroom and beyond.

Each title has a free downloadable lesson that includes a focus on SEL (social and emotional learning) geared toward building a culture of compassion within a diverse community.
