Here is the additional video that we didn't get to in the training this morning regarding privilege:
Cultural Communication Norms: A few points of consideration when interacting with students
Some cultures see it as an insult to look an instructor or "authority figure" like a tutor directly in the eye. Other cultures see direct eye contact as a sign of integrity and honesty.
Some cultures have a very high regard for teachers, and it would not be proper for the tutee to correct a tutor if the tutor misunderstood what the tutee was saying. As peer tutors, make the tutees feel comfortable in addressing if they don't understand a concept or asking for clarification if a tutor makes a mistake.
Personal physical space is different from one culture to the next (i.e. in some cultures it is normal to sit close, while in others it is not).
In certain cultures it might be improper for a male to tutor a female or for a female to tutor a male. Don't take it personally.
We have talked about culturally responsive teaching, privilege, and unconscious bias/microaggressions, In a short response, reflect on how tutors and the tutoring centers can create an inclusive and welcoming environment that acknowledges and supports the students’ cultural identity. What are some strategies you've used in the past or you could employ in the future to be sensitive to the diverse student population who comes in for tutoring?
Can't change a rubric once you've started using it.
