Abstract/Description

Each child is introduced to many different cultures and beliefs and will continue to be exposed to differences throughout their lives. Culturally responsive education is important because it puts emphasis on the fact that education and teaching extend far beyond the walls of the classroom. The purpose of this study is to figure out how teachers can create a culturally responsive class. . It is important to provide tools that help all students become respectful of the multitudes of cultures and people that they will interact with in their lifetime. This study will address the following research question: How can educators create and maintain culturally responsive classrooms? This study follows qualitative design using classroom observation. To answer each research question, the researcher observed one classroom in an elementary school grade 5. Once a week on Monday afternoons, I went to a fifth grade class. In that classroom I observed and participated for two to three hours a week. One elementary teacher in the San Francisco Bay area was observed in their classrooms. The teacher was chosen because they are the teacher in the school in which I am doing my fieldwork, so this is a sample of convenience. I analyzed the data using thematic analysis of observations. The research is progress. I anticipate the results to be a positive change is the classroom through the use of new teaching methods that empower cultures other than the majority culture of the classroom.
