I am sometimes asked to recommend books for new parents or people who work with children, or for those new to college-level teaching. Here are some resources I have found useful.
Pregnancy and Prenatal Development
Annie Murphy Paul, Origins: How the Nine Months Before Birth Shape the Rest of Our Lives
Infancy and Early Childhood
American Academy of Pediatrics, Caring for Your Baby and Young Child
Ari Brown & Denise Fields, Baby 411
Peggy Ornstein, Cinderella Ate My Daughter
Christia Spears Brown, Parenting Beyond Pink and Blue: How to Raise Your Kids Free of Gender Stereotypes
Susan A. Ambrose et al., How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching
Ken Bain, What the Best College Teachers Do
Daniel F. Chambliss & Christopher G. Takacs, How College Works
Teaching About Diversity and Equity
Diversity and Inclusion — University of Michigan Center for Research on Teaching and Learning
I have also created an online directory of resources for teaching about diversity and equity at the college level. The directory is available here.
