Display the PDF for your Calling All Colors Group to view it or print it out for each student to have a copy.

Walk the students through the pie charts to explain what they are looking at. Have the students compare the different charts to the chart of the overall school or district demographics.


Discussion Questions
  • Where are the points where the graphs show different sizes of pie pieces than the overall school pie?
  • Why might this be? Why might groups of students in our school be having different experiences? How can we find out more information on why this might be happening?

  • What can we do as a Calling All Colors Group to make the pies look more similar?

  • What could we do to involve other students?
  • What could we do to involve teachers and administrators?
