Recommendations for Culturally Responsive Teaching – A Focus on Afghan Culture

This video presents an overview of the history and culture of Afghanistan. I conducted this research prior to doing a home visit with a refugee family that had moved to the United States in January 2017 from Kandahar, Afghanistan. In addition to the research information, I also summarize what I learned in the home visit about Afghan culture, and make recommendations for teachers for being culturally responsive in their teaching and classroom environments. Take the time to visit families in their homes and get to know them and their cultures. It’s always a wonderful, eye-opening experience!
