Learning Outcome Pedagogical Intent Student Position

Communicate a personal acceptance of and acknowledge the dynamics of culture in the lives of all students.

Assessment: 25 pts.

Due: Session 2

Teachers know that every person has a culture to be appreciated and that utilizing parts of students’ cultures as they work with ELs makes learning more accessible.

Students have been introduced to the Instructional Guide. They are now asked to select a few of their possessions to bring with them to session 2 to share.


  1. Considering the different aspects of culture, family community, home, work, etc., choose three artifacts that represent who you are within your culture. 
  2. Using a 3x5 card for each item, write about how this artifact reflects your culture and express reasons why you feel this way. Label each card with a title which includes your name.
  3. Bring your cultural artifacts and 3x5 cards to Session 2 and be prepared to share about one of these items in class.
