When I know there will be an ELL in my classroom, I would conduct some research about their home country, show courtesy and do my best to create a welcoming and safe environment for them. As Jean Clinton mentioned in the “Teaching Strategies that Address Trauma and Resilience” There are reasons behind why kids behave a certain way in the classroom and why sometimes what we have planned does not work.
Bearing the growth mindset in mind, we need to understand that kids will do well if they can. They need time to adjust new environment and participate. If we create a condition that is caring and safe, having a strong sense of belonging, experiential and engaging, they will soar and thrive.
How has this area deepened your understanding of culturally responsive pedagogy?
As you may know about the iceberg theory, culture is not something like a grammatical rule that is obvious. Most is unsaid and invisible. Culture goes much deeper than typical understandings of ethnicity, race and/or faith. Culture is everything we do and everything we understand.
The monograph emphasizes how crucial it is to acknowledge our students’ multiple social identities and how they intersect with the world. This has reinforced my understanding of creating a welcoming and safe environment that embrace diversity and help every student to succeed.
