Souto-Manning and Martell (2017) write, “There is a puzzling mismatch between the diversity of
children and the standardization and regimentation of curriculum and teaching (Genishi &
Dyson, 2009). Many children in today’s K-2 classrooms do not see themselves on their
classroom walls, in materials, or within the curriculum. As previously documented, literacy
curriculum and teaching are often not representative, relevant, or accessible to children of color
who have historically been left out of the curriculum (Sleeter, 2005; Souto-Manning, 2013).”
The diversity that students represent spans learning ability, learning style, race, ethnicity,
language, and religion, among others. Describe the culture of your school and its
accommodations for such diversity. Also, consider additional efforts that you believe might
make students see themselves in the curriculum more. Please share any information from any of
the course readings so far that is relevant.
