In this seminar, I will show the audience how to promote greater inclusion in their classroom through the use of culturally and linguistically diverse pop culture. I will provide specific examples drawn from my own classroom and demonstrate how this project can be used to unlock student creativity. While the focus of this seminar will be on economics education, the idea of promoting inclusivity through foreign language resources is quite generic and can easily be applied to other disciplines.
