Adoption in the Classroom: A Memo to My Fellow Teachers

A teacher--and adoptive mom--created this handout. Share it with all of your child's teachers.

Teacher-to-teacher thoughts on creating an adoption-friendly classroom, including...
  • As the teacher, what you believe matters. Your unconscious stereotypes will be communicated to the class.
  • "Student of the week" projects can be structured to encourage students to share their lives from any age.
  • Children born outside the U.S. are not experts on the culture and language of their birth countries.
  • And six other excellent points about adoption all teachers should consider.
