  • Bridging the Cultural Divide Between Teachers and Students

    While the student population in America's public schools becomes increasingly diverse, the nation's teaching force remains predominantly white. The divide is especially prevalent in urban districts like Chicago, where nearly 90 percent of public school students are black or Hispanic and fewer than half the teachers are. Research suggests that these differences can impact student performance as personal biases and cultural misunderstandings get in the way of learning. The Chicago Teacher Education Pipeline at Illinois State University takes a step beyond conventional cultural competency training by immersing their teacher candidates in Chicago's highest-need communities - part of a month-long intensive fellowship called STEP-UP.

    According to Pierre Bourdieu, cultural capital is the cultural knowledge that serves as the currency that helps us navigate a culture and alters our experiences and the opportunities available to us. This theory focuses on the embodied, objectified and institutionalized states of capital and is significantly important in assisting us in understanding inequality in education and other social structures. Further explanation of cultural capital can be found on page 365 of the Sociology 2e text by OpenStax College.

Learn more about #TEDxAM14 at http://bit.ly/1DZMWzo. Early in his career as an English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher in New York City, Manuel Hernández Carmona had many students recently arrived from Latin American countries. He was tasked to teach these 10th graders, many who had been in the U.S. less than two years, the works of Hemingway, Poe and Shakespeare – and was excited to do it. But “after an intensive month of ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ I quickly understood that I had a major predicament on my hands.” The problem was not the students’ desire to learn, but rather that, “Try as they might, my students continued to struggle with the plight of the star-crossed lovers, because their own social, cultural and personal backgrounds were so far removed from the lives of the Montagues and Capulets of Verona.” Determined to bridge that gap, Hernández Carmona discovered the power of Latino/a literature, which constructed bridges of understanding to teach his students to learn English, to read, stay in school and pass citywide Regents exams. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
