I work to promote equity in my classroom by getting to know students with a survey at the start of the year. They are able to answer questions about reading, personal information and goals. This allows me to get to understand them as individuals and to make connections in the future and I learn their names. I currently incorporate students working in small group and use a variety of aids such as videos, anchor charts, graphic organizers, etc. for students. I also learn more about their cultures when I ask questions about favorite foods and music.
