Cultural Sensitivity in the ClassroomEven though I have no experience yet teaching english, I have acquired several years of teaching experience at US Universities teaching mathematics as well as marketing. Due to the relatively large percentage of foreign students at US Universities, inherently I also acquired experience teaching and dealing with students from various cultures. Following are what I consider the most important aspect to teaching based on varying cultural backgrounds: • Level of class-structure students desire • Willingness of students to engage in classroom conversation • Willingness of students to be critical in the classroom • Level of sensitivity of students to feedback and critique • Level of patience • Level of trust in the teacher The following is a discussion of the above mentioned factors as I have experienced and analyzed them, and should by no means be treated as results of much more objective research endeavors. I do believe they might provide some valuable insights, as I have not seen many comprehensive articles on this topic. The US system is typically provides little structure. The philosophy behind this approach is if you throw information at students and let them figure out how it all fits together, the learning effect will be better.
