Connecting Bemidji State University’s Students, and Their Students, With Diverse Texts

Bemidji State University


Tools are needed to prepare the next generation of teachers to meet the needs of diverse classrooms, and Bemidji State University is expanding the toolkit through the inclusion of diverse texts in their library. These new and diverse texts are supporting BSU’s teacher candidates’ development as culturally responsive educatorswhile also increasing the engagement, personal connections, and motivation of the rural K-12 students whom they support.
