Good list to help parents go beyond the surface level and ask questions of teachers that will help inform them about the process of learning.

Monika J's curator insight, April 22, 2013 10:38 AM

This webpage would be one of the most useful to teachers as it provides teachers with a number of activities to give to students in relation to the syllabus, describes events or retells stories that demonstrate their own heritage and the heritage of others, especially in relation to family, however it also gives a global perspective. The website includes a wide range of different activities that includes the use of classroom resources and digital resources. Cennamo's, et al (2010) book 'technology integration for meaningful classroom use' argues that the use of technology can help foster students understanding during learning. As well as ICT skills students can develop their literacy skills from the activities. Many of the activities found on the page can also be changed into an assessment for the teacher to use. Teachers can also change some of the activities to make sure students are capable of completing. For instance teachers can take the first activity and change it to include a verbal discussion or they can take the images and as a class place them on a map to make a link to where they're from. Each activity found on the page makes a link to different aspects of family life, family, people in the family, families that work together, celebrations by different families, and how children have different dreams about their future when they grow up.

 

The many activities asks students to think of their own family heritage and then compare them to those of families around the world. Many of the activities look into the lives of families living in poverty. Not only does this introduce different cultures but it also introduces students to the idea that some people and places around the world are not a lucky as the students.
