Joelle Group brings humour and positive energy to every interaction.  The team staff feel that they have worked hard to meet a community's actual requirements.  Staff have worked relentlessly and painstakingly to strengthen and diversify the board; to help it better reflect the needs and interests within the community; to act in a professional manner.  One lady member reflected that working in partnership had helped her take a more professional and strategic view of her own organisation.

30 Ways to Become a Culturally-Sensitive Educator - InformED

30 Ways to Become a Culturally-Sensitive Educator - InformED | Joelle Group Plc | Scoop.it

"When it comes to personalized learning, there’s one area we tend to neglect whether we realize it or not, and that area is cultural background. Despite the fact that students are constantly engaged in a complex transformation of culturally influenced identity–which in many cases can have a major impact on academic performance–instructors seldom respond to cultural needs the way they respond to psychological, behavioral, or social characteristics."

This post is split into three sections. The first section looks at the term "culturally responsive instruction" and provides not only a definition but also a list of ten characteristics that provide a more robust understanding.

The second section provides a look at "common assumptions placed on students from other cultures." Eleven common misconceptions are shared (based on research from the Center for Research on Teaching and Learning at the University of Michigan.

The final section has 30 recommended instructional strategies. The post states "The cultural inclusiveness of a learning environment will depend upon the kinds of interactions that occur among you and your students." The post discusses the various types of interactions that may take place and then provides a lit of the recommended strategies. Three are listed below. All are briefly discussed in the post.

* Anticipate possible responses to controversial topics.

* Be ready to challenge assumptions that groups will either be aided or hindered by having certain kinds of students in their group.

* Include, as much as possible, materials written or created by people of different backgrounds and/or perspectives.
As the number of ELL increases in schools within the United States the need for us to be aware of cultural diversity increases. This post provides many suggestions that will be helpful in helping you to meet the needs of these students.

Doris Palomino's curator insight, August 19, 2013 12:13 PM

I've found this article very interesting because it is not one related to the "to be", like in articles related to emotional intelligence - which I agree is a great topic - but it is focused on the "as is". When leaders show their emotions, you really know where you are and if you can move forward or not.

"Emotional data seems less relevant in the business world where logical data reigns supreme. But it's not only relevant, It's usually the lynchpin to change and growth".

I appreciate the final remarks about how we make difference to "read" the emotions based on the gender. So much to do  and to think about.

Efrain Teran Kaisler's curator insight, August 22, 2013 9:47 PM

La emoción es algo que te llevará donde quieres llegar pero también donde no quieres llegar solo tienes que leer , y aprenderás a ver y ser más emocional pero teniendo control de ellos, es importante ser LIDER pero en control de las emociones, no puedes ser LIDER si no eres dueño y amo de tus emocciones que sabe dirrigirlas. Para LIDERAR  a otros aprende a liderar tus emociones.
