Cultural Diversity

Transcript: Collaborative Action on Inclusion - Cultural Diversity Summary of the week ... By Connie, Alison and Shelby What was our learning goal this week? Throughout history, dominant groups have determined what are the essential learnings in society and in school settings. Often this ensures status quo. When we reflect on our minority groups, such as Aboriginal cultures, we need to be aware that the system is part of the problem as to why many of the minority culture groups are struggling to be successful in our school systems. We need to be cognizant as teachers/leaders that understanding and celebrating diverse cultural experiences add to the learning, while cultural assimilation does not. It is important that we become more effective at teaching multiple perspectives in our everyday instruction. Cultural viewpoints need to permeate all aspects of our pedagogy. One way we can begin our journey in doing this is to be aware of our own teaching styles. Ottmann and Pritchard (2010) state that, "Inclusion of Aboriginal perspectives should permeate the school culture and contribute to the positive climate that the school community feels on a daily basis" (p. 38). Is your school and/or district supporting teacher preparation to address cultural diversity? If so, how are they doing this, if not, what would you suggest they start doing? Please address a specific cultural minority that impacts your particular school. Fleetwood Park is a unique school as its composition is made up of many minority groups and no single “culture/race” dominates in numbers. We strive ourselves on being a multicultural school and at the very least celebrate various cultural holidays throughout the school year. ~ Harjot It is important to provide students an opportunity to learn about cultural diversity, to respect differences and learn to work with people of all backgrounds. ~Steve In order for aboriginal education to permeate through the school culture, recognition of certain aboriginal days is a must, just like here at Fleetwood Park we celebrate Diwali, Christmas,St. Patricks Day, etc.. Small changes like this can go along way in promoting aboriginal education. ~Harjot The Circle of Courage can be explained as, “encompassed in four core values: belonging, mastery, independence, and generosity. The central theme of this model is that a set of shared values must exist in any community to create environments that ultimately benefit all.” We have worked as a school to move students towards each of the four values. ~Kristy We often had local Aboriginal leaders come speak at the school, share stories, cooking and crafting, with our Aboriginal students leading all the activities. ~Amy Our district has planned a cultural presentation in different forms over the years with students of different cultures. They have performed these events around District PD sessions to open or close events. ~JoAnn We receive funding from the Department of Education for cultural and experiential programming and have 1.5 designated First Nations teachers who teach Language and Culture classes. ~Silke Interestingly enough, Christian schools similar to ours but closer to Vancouver started out as schools founded by Dutch immigrants in the early part of the century but have undergone a huge identity shift as most of their population are now of Asian heritage. Trying to navigate between the two different parent communities and binding them to the same vision is a real leadership task. ~Daniel I think Ottmann & Pritchard (2010) are correct in suggesting many teachers need to develop the competencies and pedagogies necessary to prepare them for diverse classrooms. ~Todd I believe that as educators in a 21st century world, it is our duty to create awareness and respect of different cultures and how others live in our global village. ~Gayleena Reflecting on the quote provided reminds me of the mindfulness that teachers need to put into differentiating instruction so that all students can learn and achieve. I think of multiple intelligences and how the delivery of a concept can be offered in so many different ways to ensure that the way students learning styles are fulfilled. As a teacher, it resonates to me that an over dominance of my own teaching styles will also have negative consequences to students and that I need to be willing to modify my way of teaching that puts students needs before my prototype of teaching that work for me. ~Weby We do discuss in depth the history of the aboriginal experience but I think we need to take steps to allow it to come to life in our building. ~Sarah As educators we need to be REAL in our practice. ~Alison ... it has been interesting to see how the food has bridged a gap of intolerance. ~Patrick Activity Complete the teaching style survey found at the following link: We need to "teach in a manner that respects the learners' diverse learning styles and different learning situations (Conti & Welborn, 1986). Over dominance of

Transcript: By Ariana Reagor What do we want? Diversity! Where do want it? T.V.! ~The Intro~ In 1983, a Boston University professor took a study about 20 children's shows and found out that out of 1,100 characters, only 42 were African American, and 47 were other races. T.V. has come a long way since then, but it could improve. T.V. should be more diverse because; ~Kids should see someone who looks like them. ~It's more realistic to the world. ~Kids should see that stereotypes do change. One Reason why T.V. should be more diverse is because kids should see someone who looks like them. ~First~ In 1998, Children Now, a children’s advocacy organization, took a national poll about what children saw on T.V. In particular, children said, “I usually see the white people being the good guys and heroes, and the African Americans & Latinos being criminals, jumping borders, and robbing." That was in 1998, and T.V. has improved a lot since then. The Poll A study taken by Social Sciences showed that in 2017, 60.6% of actors were Caucasian, and 39.4% were every other race. To repeat, that was in 2017! Children need to see people who look like them can be heroes too. The Study ~ When children only see African Americans and Latinos as, “bad guys” they are going to think that’s all they can be. The Children's Futures Another reason why T.V. should be more diverse is because it’s more realistic to the world. ~Second~ In reality, if T.V. is only showing that white people are the heroes, and that African Americans & Latinos are the criminals, kids will think that’s true, which it’s not! What the world looks like At the same time though, we are facing stereotypes and misunderstandings in our forces, because they thought that certain people were doing something illegal, just because of how they looked. The Forces In the world, everyone can be good, because all people are capable of doing good things. The truth Last but not least, T.V. should be more diverse because kids need to understand that stereotypes do change. ~Lastly~ If T.V. stereotypes African Americans as always having afros, wearing chains, and listening to rap on a boombox,then how are children supposed to know that in the real world, you can wear whatever, and not all people wear that? The wrong stereotype Also, if all these characters fall into the stereotype of “Black”, “Mexican”, or “Asian”, then kids will begin to act, talk, and dress that way. What kids see These stereotypes should not even exist, it’s the 21st century people! Stop living in the past! The 21st century T.V. should be more diverse, undoubtedly though, some people would say that there’s already diversity in T.V. or there is too much diversity in T.V. because there’s shows that are centered around ethnic communities. Although, studies have shown from many fields that it’s important for children to see characters to not only look like themselves and their families, but also sound like them. Conclusion The argument In conclusion, T.V. should be more diverse because kids should see someone who looks like them, it is more realistic to the world, and kids need to understand that stereotypes do change. Hopefully one day, we can have T.V. shows that is so diverse, that it looks just like the world! Imagine that! In conclusion 1. What a Prezi is 2. Ms. Smith is the best teacher 3. This is the best class!! THE END 3 things I learned are... 3 Things I Learned
