Multicultural Gap

Children from culturally diverse backgrounds have been shown to learn best when the classroom environment is respectful of their linguistic, social, and cultural heritage. Trade books that build on the foundation of knowledge and experience that students bring to the classroom help bridge the gap between home and school and motivate them to read more. Engagement with reading increases when books within a classroom library reflect a student's cultural and world knowledge.
