Ken’s Thoughts – Culturally Relevant Teaching

After repeated reminders from the wife that I should write more and share my thoughts with the world, I’ve decided that it would be best not to re-invent the wheel.

Essentially, I was already spending hours drafting and re-drafting papers for my course, and these reflect much of my personal beliefs on educational matters. So instead of re-writing new articles, why not just use the ones I’ve already written?

 

The following paper – Learning Environment – Culturally Relevant Instruction – is one that started as a very broad topic, but which I shaped to represent much of my thoughts on education, with a slant towards those who may experience cultural (not necessarily racial) difficulties in the education system they find themselves in.

 

As you, faithful reader, spend your time on the following article, do let us know how you like it. You are, after all, the reason why I’m writing in the first place.

 

Do you think this is a bad idea? Is the article too long? Too wordy? Does it lack the ‘oomph’ of shorter tirades? Would you prefer me to return to writing shorter notes?

 

Or perhaps you love the idea? The length is just nice for you to read at night, and has proved to be such a wonderful cure for insomnia that you think I should patent it?

 

We’d love to hear from you!
