    Cultural Months

    I think it is important for students to learn about different cultures and value the fact there are specific months we can use to prompt our teaching. Although it could seem to cause more awareness of differences, I think it all depends on how we as teachers choose to teach and guide our students. I strongly feel that studying about other cultures allows students the opportunity to see the similarities we all have and helps to break down stereotypes.

    When teaching about cultures however, I think all cultures (specifically those in your classroom) should be taught equally. For example, I think it is a tragedy when holidays are taught and Christmas is excluded. It does students a disservice when we value other cultures and exclude theirs.
