To build upon the Reading to End Racism program, which comes to Horizons on May 12, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee pulled together several books for teachers and classrooms to explore in the coming weeks. These books delve into many themes of diversity, including racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity, gender identity, and individuals with disabilities.
All Horizons community members are invited to peruse the baskets and note the books that may be of interest for home reading. Since many of the books are library books, the option to “check out” a book is just for the teachers/classrooms currently. However, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee will also put together a list of the books, titles, authors, and brief book blurbs for families who may want to find these books later.
A suggestion sheet has been placed next to the baskets. We hope families, teachers, staff, and students will offer information about books, videos, or other resources they have found meaningful so that the Diversity and Inclusion Committee may consider purchasing these materials as we build an internal resource library next year.
