Newsletter 65: Becoming culturally competent—Ideas that support practice
‘Cultural competence’ is a set of ideas that can seem daunting to educators. In this e-Newsletter, Catharine Hydon demystifies the term and offers practical, everyday steps to becoming more ‘competent’. Catharine suggests that we start by understanding our own cultural identity and connecting to our local families and communities and the values and traditions that matter to them. Cultural competence is ultimately about building respectful relationships, over time.
