Review: What is Culture? • Culture is often described like “air.” • “Culture” and “race” are not synonyms. • Our culture comes from how, where, when, by whom we were raised . • Culture affects how individuals view the world and how they live; our students’ culture impacts their experience with school. • Culture is both formed and transmitted through communication, verbal and non-verbal.
