Section Two: Socio-Cultural Consciousness
Begin by viewing the video:
Questions for Reflection and Circle discussion
- What socio-cultural context did I grow up within? (Ex: Class, race, culture, economic status, etc.). In what way did that context impact my learning?
- What socio-cultural contexts exist in the school where I teach? In what ways do these contexts impact my students’ learning?
- How aware of these contexts are the staff members serving in my school? Do we as a staff currently work toward continuing to build this awareness? In what ways?
- How might a strong awareness of the socio-cultural contexts within my school improve the learning experiences for our students?
