She encounters Southern corn chowder, Japanese miro shiru, Puerto Rican chuletón, Greek chicken soup (avgolemono), Italian lentil soup, beet and cabbage soup, and Barbados oxtail soup.

The following are ways for me to utilize CRT in facilitating cultural and racial equity in my classroom: - Allow students to communicate in their language (L1) because it demonstrates the acceptance of their culture and identity. I have seen many educators deny their students of this right and I made sure in my current classroom to allow students to communicate in the language that they are most comfortable with. It is important for ELL students to use both languages because they may know a word in their L1 that they don’t know in their L2. - Make sure that bulletin boards, displays, materials, and other visuals in the classroom reflect the racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds of the students. Similarly, it is essential for students to use their real-life experience to connect school learning to students’ lives.
Some of which are understanding group dynamics where one 6th-grade teacher established a rule that students must raise their hands to answer a question. Also, supporting self-control where an 8th-grade teacher supports self-control and helps students maintain appropriate behavior during whole-group instruction. In addition, a 7th-grade Spanish teacher encourages students to appraise reality by encouraging the students to understand the effects of their behavior on their learning. On the other hand, Opportunities to translate Skinner 's theories into practice in the middle school classroom include ignoring inappropriate behaviors,
In school’s children come from an array of backgrounds and each has its own impact on students. As an educator it is important to expose children to different cultures and ethnicities students may not be aware of. Teachers need to celebrate and cherish differences. “Children learn by observing the differences and similarities among people” as well as absorbing the spoken messages that adults share in their life. One curriculum that some schools follow is known as an Anti-Bias Curriculum.
Introduction This paper’s purpose is to define what a Read Aloud is and how it is utilized effectively in a classroom. Then I will discuss the benefits of Read Alouds on a student’s Literacy skills.

Self-Assessment According to Anderson & Madigan (2005), the first strategy or step that should be taken in creating a culturally responsive learning environment is teacher self-assessment. A teacher needs to assess their personal culture to learn how their own values and lifestyles may create biases towards other cultures.

Reading Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird is crucial to the tenth grade English curriculum for the lessons it teaches students and the topics it brings forward for discussion that students must acknowledge and understand. The whole point of an education system is to provide students with the tools to become productive citizens. This idea fuels the curriculum for students as they begin with their primary education all the way until they conclude high school or even a higher level degree. It is crucial that the information taught to students includes social issues in societies of the past and the present, enabling them to be active members in discussions they may face in the future.

In the article, “Preserving the Cultural Identity of English Language Learner”, Sumaryono and Ortiz argued that in the classroom, students can become disconnected and feel abandoned if the teacher doesn’t express any sort of sensitivity towards their cultural identities (16).

Students are willing to learn English but being able to freely express themselves and their creativity is of concern. Ortiz recommended that schools “find meaningful ways to incorporate the richness of students’ cultural background in the curriculum” (17). During my high school year, there was a period where students were really under performing in English.
