Title: Final Class: Human Diversity

Final Class Human Diversity Intercultural
Competence and Understanding Course Synthesis
  • Presentation by Ása

Classroom Environment in Iceland
  • Very few, if any, immigrants
  • The majority is middle class, some would be
    considered poor and some rich (but all got a
    place to live and food on the table)
  • There can be disabled students in the classroom
  • Typical classroom consists of 25 students and one

4th class in Reykjavík 2003
Methods of teaching
  • As many as possible.
  • Everybody learns differently (Multiple
    intelligences by Gardner).
  • A teacher has to get used to using a lot of
    methods and demonstrations.
  • What youre used to (and how you were taught)
  • What you feel comfortable with
  • This is the best time!

Examples of different teaching methods
  • Explain in words
  • Drawing a picture of the thing youre trying to
    describe on the blackboard
  • Show a video about it (if available)
  • Making the students do a little play about it
    (even possible in science!)
  • think, pair, share
  • Demonstration experiments
  • Many other ways...

Learning about electric circuits
Classroom decoration and design
  • All kinds of chemistry, physics and biology
    posters and objects like the periodic table,
    pictures of animals and plants and maybe real
    ones as well.
  • Pictures of children all over the world looking
    at and studying the same things.
  • Posters of children from poor countries doing
    other things.
  • Pictures from laboratories where both men and
    women work side by side.
  • Now it seems that my classroom walls will just be
    filled with all kinds of stuff, but isnt that
    what science classrooms are supposed to look
    like?!? I think so ?

Roles of teacher and students
  • The teacher is there to teach the subject and
    help in any way he can.
  • The teacher is also a role model (in everything
    he does)
  • Ready to teach and explain in the simplest way
    and using all kinds of methods, as discussed
  • Some have maybe understood most of it
  • Others might be completely lost and have no idea
    of whats going on.
  • Faith in the students, patience.
  • The students are there to be interested, willing
    to learn and have fun.

  • if my teacher can learn this,so can I. He isnt
    really smarter than me in any way, hes just
    studied more over the years
  • Our brains arent that different
  • Interest
  • Positive thoughts
  • Students as researchers.
  • Finding information is easy
  • -a good library or an internet connection.

Student behavior
  • No bullying or ignoring
  • Turn in assignments at the right time
  • Show up in class (and at the right time)
  • Show me (the teacher) the same respect that I
    show them

Recommendations to the school
  • Display
  • All kinds of family types
  • Children from all over the world
  • Men and women in different jobs
  • ...
  • Look at each school
  • ???
