Culture in the Classroom

Culture is everywhere in our schools and classrooms, including in places where we least expect it. That influences everything about student learning, including how children see themselves in relation to nature. For educators, understanding that classrooms and the things in them are cultural is important. Artifacts not only reflect cultural assumptions, but they also may have effects on how students see themselves in  relation to school, communities, and nature itself. This observation represents both a challenge and an opportunity.
