Educating teachers about diverse families: a workshop for transitional Kindergarten - 12th grade teachers

Today’s students are more diverse and are being raised in a variety of family structures. Unfortunately, teacher’s demographics do not reflect this diversity. This paper 
 reviews what constitutes a family, studied multiple researchers regarding teacher 
 education of diversity and family diversity, bias, assumptions about diverse students and 
 their families, explored and identified the need for teachers to be educated about family 
 diversity, and how to introduce family diversity to working teachers through professional 
 development workshops.
