Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 27, 2014 10:15 PM

John Dewey suggested that school was a mingling of cultures. Certainly, there are dominant cultures, but an important aspect of teaching is knowing this and preserving the integrity of what each person brings with them in their learning. This includes the teacher. It is about preserving what is important and healthy and replacing the outdated and outmoded with new healthy contributions.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Until we REALLY deal with inequity, we will not get very far.  Some tips:  

On an individual level, it means transforming our consciousness and practice. We can begin implementing many of these changes immediately. We can:

assign work requiring computer and Internet access or other costly resources only when we can provide in-school time and materials for such work to be completed;work with our schools to make parent involvement affordable and convenient by providing transportation, on-site childcare and time flexibility;give students from poverty access to the same high-level curricular and pedagogical opportunities and high expectations as their wealthy peers;teach about classism, consumer culture, the dissolution of labor unions, environmental pollution and other injustices disproportionately affecting the poor, preparing new generations of students to make a more equitable world;keep stocks of school supplies, snacks, clothes and other basic necessities handy for students who may need them, but find quiet ways to distribute these resources to avoid singling anyone out;develop curricula that are relevant and meaningful to our students' lives and draw on their experiences and surroundings;fight to get our students into gifted and talented programs and to give them other opportunities usually reserved for economically advantaged students and to keep them from being assigned unjustly to special education;continue to reach out to parents even when we feel they are being unresponsive; this is one way to establish trust;challenge our colleagues when they stigmatize poor students and their parents, reminding them of the inequitable conditions in our schools and classrooms; andchallenge ourselves, our biases and prejudices, by educating ourselves about the cycle of poverty and classism in and out of U.S. schools.

The bottom line is, if you don't bring youth culture into the classroom you exist in a space where you're only putting in an established culture.

 

–Christopher Emdin Culture is central to learning. ...

 

"Culture is central to learning. It plays a role not only in communicating and receiving information, but also in shaping the thinking process of groups and individuals. A pedagogy that acknowledges, responds to, and celebrates fundamental cultures offers full, equitable access to education for students from all cultures. –Principles for Culturally Responsive Teaching"

 

Personal story: I majored in visual arts in high school and in many of my computer generated art projects I incorporated my poetry and various cultural-vernacular symbols (see below) such as the art of the West African Akan people, known for jewelry and a strong connection between visual and verbal expressions.

Restorative Justice: Resources for Schools

Restorative Justice: Resources for Schools | Culturally Responsive Schools and Classrooms | Scoop.it
Resources and case studies that demonstrate how to bring restorative justice to your school or classroom.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Restorative justice empowers students to resolve conflicts on their own, and it's growing in practice at schools around the country. Essentially, the idea is to bring students together in peer-mediated small groups to talk, ask questions and air their grievances. (This overview from Fix School Disciplineis a wonderful primer.)

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 11, 2014 2:22 PM

This is a great way for students to learn an alternative to punishing as the only way to deal with offenders. I used Touching Spirit Bear as a novel to introduce the concept for Social Studies.

The Equity Project is a consortium of projects dedicated to providing high quality data to educational decision-makers in order to better understand and address issues regarding educational equity and bridge the gap between research and practice.
