Dissemination and training of trauma-informed care to school and clinical professionals: Ameliorating effects of trauma in contemporary ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) practices
Chicane children’s literature as a catalyst for the building of healthy identities and strong communities in the classroom and beyond. I am interested in how Chicana teachers see their own identities and connect to Chicane children’s literature in nurturing classroom spaces that foster the development of healthy identities and strong communities with young children. Presently, we are seeing legislation, policy, and practices that attack assets-based teaching, the teaching of accurate histories, and cultural wealth communities of Color. This includes the censoring and elimination of multicultural children’s literature which have detrimental effects on all children, especially children of Color. I want to illuminate the powerful practices that support the nurturing of children’s identities and academic trajectories when they engage with a curriculum that reflects their own linguistic and cultural backgrounds as well as those of others. As scholar, Rudine Simms-Bishop has stated children’s literature that serves as “mirrors, windows, and sliding doors” is a powerful tool for dialogic assets-based instruction.

In America’s multicultural society, schools need to be culturally responsible regarding how they use colors. Each culture has meanings for colors, and using the wrong color in certain contexts can cause confusion or offense. In mainstream American culture, white is associated with purity and new beginnings, whereas other cultures associate it with mourning and sadness. Another example is the color red; some cultures see red as a sign of love and others as danger. Our failure to consider these cultural differences can lead to misunderstandings and widen the cultural divide. There is a need to develop awareness and better understand how these nuances affect our multicultural elementary students and how we can become more culturally responsible regarding color.
