2Common Beliefs Survey and Activity Log ReflectionThis reflection acitivity provided me a great understanding covering diversity in the classroom setting. Being a second year teacher I have a lot to learn when it comes to the differentcontexts of diversity.

It focused on the area of “Understanding the Learner” by getting to know your students culture and family backgrounds (Laureate Education, 2016). Building relationships with not only my students, but their families as well by learning about their cultural identities in order to make them feel comfortable and build opportinuties for success in my classroom (OR, 2020). I will continue to learn ways to
