New books celebrate diversity

Tinc Road has added books that celebrate diversity and explore the African-American experience. Classes will primarily read the books during morning meetings – a time devoted to social emotional learning which helps students develop self-awareness, social awareness, and relationship skills.

The books, chosen by each grade level team, underscore some of the messages discussed at a recent staff conference day. Before the school year began, Tyrone Howard, Ph.d, a best-selling author and renowned professor of education, discussed why race and culture matters in schools. That presentation inspired second grade teacher Laura Iacampo to find a way to bring discussions about race and diversity to the classroom during the morning SEL time. She saw a selection of appropriate Scholastic Books and asked the school's parent teacher organization to fund the purchase.

"Character education has been a key part of our curriculum for years," Iacampo said. "As educators, we always try to encourage students to embrace and love our differences. We need to understand and appreciate each other cultures so that we can come together as one big beautiful family. I want thank the PTO for supporting this initiative and so many others during the school year."

Selected books include both fiction and non-fiction titles. Among them are "Through My Eyes," an autobiographic account by civil rights icon Ruby Bridges of her experience as the first Black student to enter an all-white school, and "We've Got A Job" about the famed 1963 Birmingham Children's March.

Other storybooks include "Be You" by "The Dot" author Peter Reynolds and "New Kid," a winner of a Newbery Medal for excellence in children's literature and a Coretta Scott King Author Award. "New Kid" tells the tale of a seventh-grader who enters a prestigious private school and is one of only a few students of color there. "All Are Welcome," written for younger children, depicts a school where kids from a variety of backgrounds learn from each other and celebrate each other's traditions.
