How does understanding culture and power impact your teaching?
Understanding theses concepts will impact my teaching by helping me to realize that students come into the classroom with different background knowledge. So the connections between content and everyday life will be different from student to student.
The three terms from the word wall that resonated with me were, empathy, patience, and respect. These words resonated with me because I believe they are some of the most important traits a teacher can have.
I plan on teaching in a culturally responsive way by, Connecting what I teach to the town and area in which I am teaching, and asking the students how the things I’m teaching affect them.
