Clinical Field Experience: Cultural CompetenceAngela ChiecoJune 8th, 2022Professor HesterESL-546
Part 1:How do you support and celebrate cultural diversity within instruction?-Cultural Awareness in the Classroom. 4:54.?v=nE3OkjPz2p4.In this video, I listened to a teacher discuss how she celebrates cultural diversity in herclassroom. As I watched the video, I saw that she has a large collection of books whichare all depicting various cultures. She does this so that her students feel accepted and tocreate an environment that is warm and welcoming. She teaches the students aboutpositive people in different cultures because she wants to promote the beauty andpotential in all people. She really focuses on making sure that her students understandthat they are special and accepted, and that they can be themselves and let theirpersonalities shine.

Some of the books are simple stories that donot have a deeper meaning while others touch on important topics such as bullying orbeing left out because of the way someone looked. This teaches the children that it canhappen to so many other people but also teaches these students how to overcome thesethings.-Making Classrooms More Inclusive for Multilingual Learners. 3:25..In this video, the speaker discussed four ways to support inclusion in the schools. 1.Include time for the students to speak in multiple languages and express themselves intheir native language as well as the one they are learning.

This view lowers expectations ofthe students and lowers the academics that we provide to them. It does not providestudents with high expectations and support to succeed. The asset-based approachencourages engagement, builds connections with families, builds community, andincreases academic outcomes. Students’ strengths are used as leverage and they havehigh expectations which help them to believe in themselves and build their self-esteemwhen they learn something new. The video then provided a few scenarios questioninghow teachers can use an asset-based approach to work with the students. One scenariowas about an African American girl who was struggling in math and said that “math isstupid” while scribbling out things she had not gotten correct. There were optionsprovided for which way teachers can properly approach helping her with math. The
