Recently we asked our education community to name their favorite culturally responsive books. We want to share these books with you so that all of our students can see themselves reflected in the literature we choose. It is so very important that students read stories and see characters that share the same; race, social class, gender, language, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, and ability as them. And, that the storylines and characters are recognized and regarded as assets in text. It is our goal to create an educational environment that fosters: students who experience academic success, who are socio-politically conscious and socio-culturally responsive, and who have a critical lens through which they challenge inequitable systems of access, power, and privilege.
