Examining Identity & Culture as a Teacher

Our identity and culture have great influence over our teaching.

But how often do we think about these influences?

It’s quite normal to sit in workshops about a new pedagogical technique or attend meetings about the latest curriculum, but rarely do we take the time to reflect on how our teaching practices have been formed.

In this video, I talk about the influences of identity and culture on us as professionals and present an exercise that you can do either individually or as a grade level team.

I encourage you to take 5 minutes out of your day to do this exercise. I think you’ll be surprised what you discover about yourself.
