In February, I will be presenting a session at the University of Denver’s Morgridge College of Education’s Gifted Conference. My topic is “Exploring Diversity through Books.” As I was trying to select a book to review for this issue, my mind kept returning to the books I’ll be sharing at the conference. We’re all aware that diversity in our classrooms is now the norm, not the exception. Our own 2e students are part of this diversity. Therefore, some questions we must address are these:
How do we build empathy and understanding in a world in which diversity is now the norm?
How do we help our learners walk in someone else’s shoes?
How do we help our students learn about the cultures/situations of classmates who are not like them?
