Take a Walk in Someone Else’s Shoes

Calling all parents, teachers, and students! Want to challenge yourself and learn about what life is like for other people at the same time? Try the Diverse Reads Reading Challenge, where you read up to 9 books written by or about a diverse range of people. I have copies of the flyer in the library if you’d like a hard copy.

Not sure where to start? Go the library homepage, click on “Catalog,” then click on “Resource Lists” on the left. Scroll down until you find the 8 “Diverse Reads” resource lists I’ve created that fit the categories. I’ve included books, ebooks, audiobooks, and non-English books. Not every book is in the list, of course, but it’s a place to start. Email me at angelaromero@nanjing-school.com with any questions!

Diverse Reads Reading Challenge

Teachers, looking for ideas to read something new yourself or to get your students to read something new? Try this 8 book reading challenge to encourage readers to find books written by and about people from various backgrounds.

How awesome would it be for us as teachers to model our diverse reading by hanging this outside of our doors and updating the flyer as we read different books?

Calling Science, Math, and geography teachers…have I got a book for you!

So I found a cool book in the library that uses aspects of Earth such as tides, the affect of gravity on mass on different planets, earthquakes, etc to produce different kinds of graphs, tables, and timelines. Great examples are given, along with explanations of when to use different kinds of graphs. It’s written for 5th grade or so, and can be found downstairs at
