Cultural Difference Theory: Everything You Need to Know
This theory suggests that students from diverse cultural backgrounds have different approaches to learning and education. If teachers can be aware of the different approaches to learning, and the cultural influence that causes it, they will be able to tailor their teaching strategies to help provide the students with the best education possible.
Teachers need to seek out these cultural differences and use the information gained from their research to help ease the transfer from learning in a specific way at home to having to adapt to a new style of learning.
Students generally begin their learning experience at home and develop basic skills such as reading and memorizing the alphabet, learning another language, writing, etiquette, etc. This information they have gotten prior to entering the school system is then used to learn new things at school. If there is too much of a cultural difference, learning can become increasingly difficult for the student.
