Scheduled Tribes have an entirely different culture and tradition. In most of the tribal cultures learning is an active pleasurable event mostly carried on among peers. But the existing system of education does not take in to account their learning style. Culturally Responsive Pedagogy is important and effective for teaching of scheduled tribes. This paper focused on Model Residential School teacher’s awareness about tribal culture and critically evaluates importance of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy.
In the commentary, “Using Native American Folktales in the Classroom”, by Debbie Reese and the piece, “The Way to Rainy Mountain”, by Scott Momaday, authenticity is very important between these controversial articles. Establishing the authenticity of a text to be used in a high school classroom is imperative before assigning the text to be read by students. In commentaries by different authors, the authors depict Native Americans in many different ways. Before reading these articles students should establish the authenticity of the pieces of literature. In Reese 's article, she talks about how children should really know the history of Native Americans not just what they looked like based on pop culture.
Their mission is to restore the balance between Navajo culture, life and land. Thus far even Non-Navajos in the classroom like Persian, African-American, Bilagáana, are even learning the language and faster than the Navajo students. This demonstrates the success of teaching and conserving the Navajo language. Teachers are doing as much as possible to conserve their language they teach the Navajo to younger generations in an effort to prevent it from disappearing with the passing of tribal
How would you feel if you were aware that your constitutional right of the First Amendment was being violated? Today in public schools all around the nation, the right to pray has been taken. As shocking as this information may seem, it is completely legitimate. This controversial decision, made by the Supreme Court on June 25, 1962, has disappointed many Americans over the past few decades. However, allowing voluntary, student-led prayer to be brought back into the school systems can not only benefit students, but also benefit our country by teaching this nation 's youth the necessary religious morals they need to be able to efficiently establish right from wrong, and allowing them to practice their constitutional right of the First Amendment.
As a second grade classroom teacher, I believe it is important for other educators to be aware of culturally responsive teaching which is closely related to multiculturalism. Culturally responsive teaching is pedagogy aware of the importance of considering the students’ culture in their learning. America’s educational system was built on a foundation of inequalities. There were many social and racial injustices in our history of education. These same inequalities are still around in the present day.
One of the reasons I chose to the book Other People’s Children by Lisa Delpit was because I want to be aware of the stereotypes and prejudices this books might uncover that I had and didn’t know I has. Teaching in a DLI program there is big diversity in our school and community. I want to be able to be culturally competent and be able to eliminate my cultural assumptions. I want to be able to understand where my students are and families are coming from so I can adjust my teaching methods and strategies. I thought it was very interesting how in her introduction she talks about how the educational system in this country is more focused on the standardized tests, scripted lessons and mandated classroom management strategies that they seem
The purpose of this project is to provide training for elementary school teachers on the topic of teaching kindergarten to 2rd grade students with handwriting difficulties or any student at risk of difficulty with handwriting.

Being taught the proper way to speak about disabilities really helps, I am now trying to speak in “ Person first” so as not to discriminate or place a stigma upon a person’s shoulders. When I eventually become a teacher all the new information I learned about diversity and disabilities in SED 125 such as knowing that not all children learn the same way or that some children may have a bigger struggle than others, and how to build healthy positive relationships with my future student. I will try to apply all the new information to my classroom
Some consider kindergarten to be a lot like preschool. However, with the focus on school readiness, many kindergarten classrooms, look more like a primary classroom than a kindergarten. The teachers should be responsible for the developmental, individual, and cultural variation in the classroom, and I don’t feel that the newly approved state-mandated, textbook-based curriculum will allow teachers the freedom needed to perform this task successfully. In my opinion, I think that each teacher should be allowed to choose a curriculum that best fits her values and beliefs. I know that this is impossible; however, I have provided the board members with three other alternatives.
Applied linguistics in second language teaching is very important. I t must be taken into consideration for teachers at the time of teaching a language, all the characteristics that go with the target language as well as the ones for the mother tongue of students. Teacher can make great use of these characteristics to contrast both languages into their lessons to help students understand similarities and differences between both languages, this can lead students to use their L1 into the acquisition of their L2. The concepts we learned have for us as teacher great importance, however we don’t want o shouldn’t try to teach them to ours students, it is not necessary for them to know the phonetic alphabet, they must discriminate the different sounds of phonemes and we can help them to do so by a variety of techniques like modelling, the use of videos or songs where they can listen the pronunciation in context.
Teachers that are receptive to emergent bilingual students have an in depth understanding of how language and subject matter education occur and have a broad span of tactics and methods to education as well. The only and greatest way for emergent bilingual students to achieve success in school is if we give them real chances in our classrooms to use language. According to Lucas, Henze, and Donato, there are a couple things we can do as teachers to contribute to the success of emergent bilingual students in our classrooms. We should put worth on language and culture and have high hopes for our emergent bilingual students. When one student in my practicum class went to Mexico for two weeks, my cooperating teacher made it a point to ask her about her trip and allowed the student to tell the class about her family in Mexico.
