Storyboard Text

  • 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.
  • Thank you!
