Bharati Baichan Topic 3: Discussion 2 08/02/2021 Why is your knowledge of your students, their background, family, and development critical for building and fostering a supportive and safe learning environment? Teachers need to know their students, their background, family, and development because the more you learn about where your students come from, the easier the teacher’s job will become (Colorin Colorado. 2016). This knowledge will help teachers better support their students in the classroom and receive more support from home (Colorin Colorado. 2016).

How does Christian Worldview, values, and cultures influence Social Studies instruction? When incorporating the Christian worldview into a social studies lesson to foster and expand learning it is important to remember that all students are entitled to their own religious beliefs. Not all students and their families believe in the Christian religion and its worldview, but some aspects can be incorporated in a classroom lesson, and it will not be against the student’s religious beliefs. One way to incorporate the Christian worldview is to discuss different religions to show students the different cultures and religions that are celebrated in the world and maybe some of their classmates may even practice some of their religions.
