Addressing the Tough Stuff
How does a new teacher go about talking to her students about relevant cultural issues without stirring the pot too much?

There are a few ways you can integrate culturally relevant issues in the classroom. Diverse literacy is a great way of doing this.
I suggest seeking historical cultural texts-- what was it like for people in this situation in history? Does this make you think of anything in recent events? What would you do in this situation?
I also suggest integrating culturally relevant texts by authors from different countries with different cultures, this is especially significant for English Language Learners. Great multicultural texts include "Esperanza Rising" are culturally relevant but are great reads for all students.

I would suggest incorporating cultural diversity in the classroom through lessons and activities. Maybe read a book about a child that takes place in Africa or go over each holiday as they come and describe why that culture celebrates that holiday. I believe that if you keeps things at a logical standpoint (and not be political), you should be fine and the students will enjoy learning about other cultures!
