Cultural Curiosity
Date: January 14, 2017, 9am-12pm
Location: Health Federation of Philadelphia | 1211 Chestnut Street, 8th Floor, Philadelphia
3 SW CEs available. PQAS and Act 48 credits are also available.

School HallwayEach day teachers instruct, care, and nurture. They develop young minds in many ways, including building a respect for different cultures and cultural values. We know that teachers thoughtfully represent different cultures within the classrooms and instruct their students to value differences.

There are many ways to teach about culture. This workshop will introduce the concept of cultural curiosity and demonstrate ways it can enhance professional practices and the classroom environment.

Participants will engage with each other to share and learn, and create a greater sense of community. By reviving and maintaining curiosity in ourselves, we will also be able to share this with our students.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to define cultural curiosity and how it relates to education, analyze personal experiences with different cultures and how they impacted professional practice, and identify three ways to increase cultural curiosity in themselves and their students.
