She is very bright and social, but is really struggling with English. You
want to ensure that your lesson plan is both culturally and linguistically
responsive, so you begin brainstorming by considering various teaching practices
that could support Jia’s culture and language.

  • Go to the section entitled “Culturally Responsive Teaching Practices” and
    “Linguistically Responsive Teaching Practices” and select two teaching practices
    that you would consider utilizing when developing your lesson plan on the life
    cycle of a butterfly.

      are different from themselves. Describe an intercultural experience that you
      have been a part of and reflect on what you learned. If you have not had an
      intercultural experience, describe what you could do to have such an experience.
      How will these experiences benefit you in the classroom to ensure both
      culturally and linguistically responsive practices?
