This session will highlight 2 holidays, Ramadan and Diwali, which are celebrated by many students in our Burlington Schools community. The goal of the session is to build on teachers' understanding of their students' cultures and lives outside of school. In addition, there will be time to share ideas for identifying, recognizing, and honoring students' religious background and cultures in the classroom. The format will include a Google slides presentation, small and large group discussion, and a book-talk about resources you can use with your students while teaching about Ramadan and Diwali.
