Select Case Study 3.5, 3.7, 3.8, or 3.9 in “For Cultural Competence: Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions needed to Embrace Diversity.”
**For Cultural Competence: Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions Needed to Embrace Diversity
Read pages 21-24, 36-50, and 54-66 in “For Cultural Competence: Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions Needed to Embrace Diversity,” by Williams, located on the Virginia Department of Education website.
Examine the scenario through a lens of cultural competence to determine when/how a deeper cultural understanding would have influenced the teacher’s responses.
In a 500-750 word analysis, discuss 2-3 of the following concepts of deep culture in the context of the selected case study:
- Collective orientation (promoting needs of the group versus promoting needs of the individual)
- Time orientation
- Respect for authority
- Perceptions and value of education
- Priority of family
- Communication (e.g., language development, verbal communication styles, nonverbal communication, physical proximity)
- Value of work/Work ethic
- Peer pressure
- Assimilation dilemma: adaptation versus preservation
In addition, include specific advice to the teacher in your case study to help him or her respond more appropriately to the student/family.
Use at least 2-3 scholarly sources (other than the assigned readings) to justify your responses.
