I have witnessed how the Cultural Difference Theory personally affects people. I have family from rural areas that have fallen victim to this theory. While attending school, one of my cousins felt as though everything she was being taught did not relate to her everyday life. She felt like she didn’t have a purpose at school. She felt as though learning about past presidents had nothing to do with her learning how to get a job or how to build her credit so she can get a place of her own. She felt as though the thing she was learning in school was purposeless and in the end, she decided to drop out of school her junior year and began working. My plan to eradicate cultural differences within the classroom would involve me treating each student equally and holding each of them to the same standard. My middle-class students and my working-class students will not receive differentiated treatment solely based on class. My students will not be punished scholastically due to slang, dialects in which they use within the home and in their culture. I plan to educate my students about different words by using pictures and actual items to help my students learn the dialect. I will also make it my mission to learn the diverse cultural backgrounds my students are coming from so that I can develop an understanding of my students and their learning styles in order to develop the best curriculum for their success. This will allow my students to feel inclusive within the learning environment. Resistance Theory The resistance theory evaluates how teachers and students recognize and respond to cultural dominance within the classroom (Giroux, H. 1985). This is where the student’s either chooses to resist the cultural dominance within the classroom or conform to it. When students resist the cultural dominance within the classroom, it is because they want to maintain their sense of identity (Giroux, H. (1985). Implementing Multicultural Education into the Curriculum My plan to implement multicultural education into the classroom would first involve me getting to know my students and their different cultural backgrounds. I would first give my students an assignment, which will involve them using their creative side. I would have them create a timeline of their life and identify their milestones. This will allow me to view their past as well as see their aspirations for the future. The next assignment would involve my students developing a tree. Resources permitting, I would allow my students to digitally design their tree using an iPad or a computer. Taking the information from their timeline and placing it on a tree. Their earliest memories would be categorized as the roots and written at the root of the tree. The trunk will represent them growing older. The branches will represent their prominent memories in which forms their identity. The leaves will represent their interest and things they are involved in such as spor>GET ANSWER
