This project’s focus is on how the ELA classroom is becoming more diverse due to the increasing diversity in society. Due to this, it is significant that ELA teachers create accommodations for their diverse learners and create a more inclusive environment for their students through education on inclusion. Adolescents in the classroom have the opportunity to learn about the benefits of diversity and inclusion in society as well as how to become more accepting and appreciative of diversity in society. ELA teachers can help students with this acceptance and appreciation by utilizing a diverse range of literature to teach about inclusion as well as having students learn from one another in order to experience the benefits of inclusion and diversity.
