Transcript of Economic Diversity in the Classroom

The economical differences between children in the classroom and what I, as a teacher, can do to help. Economic Diversity I don't believe the problems in the classroom don't come from the economic diversity. I believe the problems come from how the children are raised in and out of the classroom. The students should be taught at an early age that everyone is different and have the ability to be whom ever they choose. The children's parents or care takers make their economic diverse. When the students grow and excel past their educational level that is when they make the decision of what level they are in. Unfortunately, as the students get older other classmates notice the economic differences between a lower and upper class student. So little as to holes in a little boys shoes compared to a new pair of Nike tennis shoes Simple yet noticable
1. Group Activities: Group activities can help the students in one classroom feel more equal. Putting a child from one diverse with another child from a different diverse can help show them that the economic differences doesn't necessarily mean they are on a completely different scale with their social skills or their academics. Upper class- children who can afford things needed and wanted
Middle class- children who can afford most things needed
Lower class- children who can't afford most things As children enter into my classroom I believe it will help to leave all differences outside the classroom. I will not focus on looks or appearance but on the intelligence each child has. What can I do to help? Seating arrangements: Arranging the students to where each economic group is scattered throughout the room and mixing them together can also be a good way to show students how society really is. Like in the video, the students really learn that they must come to school to do their jobs no matter where they are seated or what economic level their parents are in.
