“IN AN ENCLOSED DIVERSE WORLD”
/ BY: Bea Mariz Tocle /
???????????? The idea of having different cultures with my students causes so much tension especially on my first day of teaching.? I even rehearsed on how to greet them the proper way.? We have tons of cultural taboos that a simple gesture may cause a huge misunderstanding.? These taboos caught an immense fraction of my interest and thirst me for more knowledge.? It’s like working in an enclosed diverse world.? Learning from senior teachers is a great help in this matter.
