Task 1.5 Learning Culture

Aim: To consider teacher and student expectations in a multi-cultural classroom

Time: 60 minutes

Watch the video below:

As you watch think about the following:

  1. What are your expectations of your diverse students? What do you think they expect of you?
  2. What do you think about the idea of extending your teaching repertoire by taking note of your students’ expectations?
  3. Do you see a place for an activity similar to Task 1.4 to build up a set of classroom expectations with your adult learners? If not, explain why and if yes, then give us an insight into how you would do this.
