Student Factors

Seek to “walk in the shoes” of students from culturally diverse backgrounds in your class and suspend your own perceptions in order to see the world from their point of view.

Explore every opportunity to highlight the strengths and value the contributions of all students, particularly those from culturally diverse backgrounds who feel marginalized.

Family Factors

“Go the second mile” in providing information and responsive support to families who face challenges associated with ethnicity/race, language diversity, and poverty.

Be a partner in your school in creating school policies that value family partnerships and encourage families from diverse backgrounds to share their experiences, traditions, and culturally related hobbies with the school community.
