Children's literature is a great resource for infusing and introducing students to diversity. Recall projects, assignments, lessons written with multiculturalism embedded within them as a means to support integrating this into your classroom. I've had a number of projects in which I've had to build a "dream library" or multicultural anthology which supports and explores all types of cultures. An important thing to note here is that the resources you share have been found to be authentic!

I would talk about my experience in my K-5 internship when my Cooperating Teacher hosted a celebration Chinese New Year. She also chooses books from different cultures to read to students to provide them with background knowledge and different perspectives. I would stress that I would incorporate these same ideas into my own classroom because I think it is important for students to know about different cultures and have a respect for them.

Interviewers should stress any personal experiences they have had with different cultures and how they plan to provide lesson plans that will incorporate/encourage diversity. I would respond by detailing my experience living with Russian and Serbian exchange workers for a summer. Through this experience, I learned to appreciate the different views of other cultures and overcome language barriers. Students need to broaden their horizons by experiencing other cultures through literature and interactive experiences.
