Abstract

This OnPoint is the first in a series of three OnPoints that explore issues around culture and teaching. This OnPoint describes the way in which NIUSI defines culture and how to think about educational settings and scenarios from the point of view of culture. The second OnPoint in this series focuses on teacher’s identity. The third OnPoint addresses how classrooms are enriched by the funds of knowledge and assets that children and their families bring with them from their homes and communities.
