Developmentally Appropriate Teaching Strategies
Read the articles â€œ10 Effective DAP Teaching Strategiesâ€ and â€œCulturally Responsive Classroom Strategies.â€ In addition, view the Culture in the Classroom website and theÂ Keynote by Lisa Delpit (Teaching Tolerance)Â video
After reviewing the required resources, identify and discuss three challenges involved with ensuring that teaching strategies are appropriate for culturally diverse children. Then, discuss these cultural challenges in the classroom using one sociological perspective (i.e., functionalism, conflict theory, symbolic interactionism, etc.) and another relevant perspective, such as Piagetâ€™s preoperational stage of development. Finally, identify and discuss how the challenges related to differences in culture may be addressed by a teacher in a way that increases the childâ€™s cognitive advancement and academic success.
You must use at least two scholarly sources other than the textbook and required resources for this assignment. The paper must include a summary of each of the challenges identified and each of the remedies to those challenges. In addition, you must include an explanation of the cultural challenges in the classroom using one of the sociological perspectives and Piagetâ€™s theory of the preoperational stage of cognitive development.
