The Spark Creativity Teacher Podcast | ELA


Jul 18, 2023

Today on the podcast, we’re talking about why offering our students diverse texts and giving them choice over their reading is so vitally important.

My guests, Dr. Claudia Rodriguez-Mojica and Dr. Allison Briceño, have recently written a carefully-researched and well-crafted book called Conscious Classrooms, all about why students need to be surrounded by diverse texts and how teachers can choose and integrate these texts.

While Claudia and Alison share examples in their book from their work with younger children, the research and practices they provide are equally important for students of all ages. We’ll be talking about how to choose diverse texts for your class, why it matters so much, and how to help your students develop a critical lens about representation when they read.

You can learn more about the book, Conscious Classrooms, and order a copy of your own, right here.
