Diversity

Below are some links I believe to be positive on the way to learning and teaching diversity in the classroom.

Bringing diversity into the classroom is a way to teach students to appreciate not only their backgrounds but others as well while also learning to look at something from a different perspective than they had before. This teaches them how to interact with their teachers and peers to take with them as they grow
