Case Study Analysis

Select Case Study 3.5, 3.7, 3.8, or 3.9 in “For Cultural Competence: Knowledge, Skills and Dispositions needed to Embrace Diversity.”

Examine the scenario through a lens of cultural competence to determine when/how a deeper cultural understanding would have influenced the

teacher’s responses.

In a 500-750 word analysis, discuss 2-3 of the following concepts of deep culture in the context of the selected case study:
•Collective orientation (promoting needs of the group versus promoting needs of the individual)
•Time orientation
•Respect for authority
•Perceptions and value of education
•Priority of family
•Communication (e.g., language development, verbal communication styles, nonverbal communication, physical proximity)
•Value of work/Work ethic
•Peer pressure
•Assimilation dilemma: adaptation versus preservation

In addition, include specific advice to the teacher in your case study to help him or her respond more appropriately to the student/family.

Use at least 2-3 scholarly sources (other than the assigned readings) to justify your responses.
