Chalk Talk: The Importance of Cultural Identity in Schools
School communities in the United States are unique in that they serve students from a variety of nationalities and ethnic groups. All students have different family dynamics and traditions. Some families have been in the U.S. for generations, some families have only recently arrived to this country. Students may speak and understand only a little English, while others know many different languages. With these various experiences and skills comes a wealth of opportunity. Students can teach others about holidays and festivals their cultures observe. Teachers can encourage students to create and join clubs that celebrate different cultural customs and languages. School faculty can host events that highlight particular cultural customs. These events can involve singing, dancing, eating, and speaking. With the rich dynamics of American culture, schools, in particular, are in a unique position to teach and learn about the world on a daily basis. Schools should encourage students to share and respond positively to cultural identities.
