Culturally Responsive Teaching
Transcript of Culturally Responsive Teaching
culturally responsive teachers? To become culturally responsive, teachers must first reflect on their own cultural assumptions, values, biases, and how they influence their expectations and interaction with students. The process of becoming a culturally responsive teacher may be challenging and frustrating but it is vital to the fullest development of all children. Strategies for teaching
culturally diverse students: In other words, culturally responsive teaching is a pedagogy that acknowledges, responds to, and celebrates cultures of all students and incorporates the cultures into all aspects of learning. Teachers must become observant and alert to the classroom behaviors and the verbal and nonverbal communication of all students. We must recognize that every student is is an individual and stereotypes about any groups must be discarded. Culturally responsive teaching occurs when teachers are sensitive to cultural differences and when culture is integrated naturally into every aspect of the classroom and learning. When students see their cultural background in the curriculum, they will be more engaged and excited to learn. Emphasize verbal interaction:
Use activities that encourage students to respond verbally. Group projects
