Being “Culturally Sensitive” in the Classroom.

What is culture? Culture is something created by people, it's their way of life, a functionally organized system which makes everything "work" or "fit" together. Culture is an all-embracing plan of life, learned by each individual child as she or he grows up, which makes everything fit and make sense. Culture is the lifestyle of a societal group, and isn't individualistic.

Most people understand cultural differences such as with food or language, but there are other subtle differences that can cause unexpected difficulties in communication. Children of a different culture from their classmates can become confused, or even sometimes deeply hurt or angry when responses don’t follow a pattern of behavior they are familiar with. There are distinct differences in how people interact with each other; how long a person looks at another person in the eye, or how we show affection toward a member of the opposite sex etc. Being aware of these differences can help ease anxiety for the child who is culturally different.

Children need time to gradually become accustomed to the differences he or she experiences in the classroom, eventually learning through the sensitive attitudes of those around them, to feel comfortable, to fit in and be happy.
