D) A culturally-responsive curriculum fosters a complementary relationship across knowledge derived from diverse knowledge systems.
(1) draws parallels between knowledge derived from oral tradition and that derived from books.
This lesson takes the knowledge and information of the elders or culture bearers and combines it with that of written knowledge. The stories that will be examined in this lesson will be told via oratory, but can also be read. I feel that it will be more culturally responsible to include culture bearers into the classroom.
Not only do the culture bearers have the information told in their stories, but they will also have background knowledge of the area that they’re from. Students can learn so much from elders and culture bearers; this lesson will try and harness some of this knowledge.
