Creative Teaching: Designing Culturally Relevant Instruction
EDU692: Creativity Culture and Global Contexts in Education Decision Making
Instructor: William Reeves
March 27, 2015
Being a classroom teacher, I have 18 students in my classroom with their age range from 5-6 years old. I get the chance to interact with children of diverse cultures daily. Some of the students in my classroom are Native American Indians, Korean, Chinese, Hispanic, Caucasian and Africa Americans. Three of my students speak very little English with one being having multiple languages because his family has been to different duty stations around the world. Getting to interact with these students, gives me a desire to know more about their experiences, their cultures and more about how they do things in a different way from how I would do it in my culture. For example, for Italians, Mexicans, Arabs and Chinese, their culture is so integral to them that they almost always carry it around with them; alongside their very tasty cuisines. The Indian, Buddha, and Zen Cultures from the larger Asian communities bring wisdom from the east right onto American soil. After beholding these entire one begins to appreciate how important diversity is.
