Striving For Diversity and Building on the Experiences and Cultures of Students

timer Asked: Mar 19th, 2015

Question description

Hello Class! For this discussion you can choose which question you respond to.  Feel free to respond to both; however, only one is required. Please respond to ONE of the following questions:

Question A

Why is it important to strive for diversity, equality, and social justice in delivering a quality education for all students?

Question B

You are a female math teacher in a high school classroom. You are well respected by your peers and a favorite with the students. You pride yourself on your classroom management skills and credit those skills to build relationships with students. However, recently you have been having problems with a male student from Iran who practices Islam. He refuses to even acknowledge you when you are teaching or if you make any request of him. You shared this experience with other male teachers on your team and they don’t seem to have the same experience with the student. In fact, they perceive him as the model student in their classes.

What do you think the problem might be? Why does the teacher have a different experience with the student? What might the teacher do differently? Should the teacher consider having the student transferred to another math class?
