2.3 Respect for Diversity
While working in an elementary school, I evaluated the nonfiction section's collection on dinosaurs before my students were going to be completing research projects on dinosaurs. I was very disappointed to find a small, very outdated collection. While all of the books were in good condition and the information in them was accurate, they were old and I coulid not see my students being interested in them, so I found some books that would not only update the collection, but also add linguistic and cultural diversity. The cultural diversity will be provided by a book about dinosaurs from Mexico and the students are hispanic, I also added books in spanish for the english language learners as well as spanish speaking parents.
