Culturally Responsive Classrooms

The purpose of this research paper is to describe a culturally responsive classroom, explain why culturally responsive classrooms are important in the United States today, and present ideas for how a teacher can create his/her own culturally responsive classroom. By exposing students to aspects of their own culture as well as a variety of different cultures, educators are able to create a more supportive environment for students and demonstrate the importance of cultural competence and acceptance in today’s society. There are three aspects to culturally responsive classrooms that will be addressed in this research paper: the definition of culture; the aspects of culture that need to be considered within the classroom; and how a teacher can create a culturally responsive classroom.
