Diversity in educational content and resources is more important than ever. Within our language classrooms, introducing our students to multiple cultural perspectives through a diverse body of resources can augment the development of empathy, curiosity, and open mindedness. With a heterogeneous mix of people, contexts, and choices represented in our curricula, we can increase empathy and intercultural competence for students of all ages and backgrounds. This workshop will introduce teachers to a diversity checklist of the presenters’ creation and posit avenues for increased representation of marginalized groups in class resources and activities. Participants will leave with resources and activities to enrich the diversity of their lessons and units, starting Monday!
