It happens all the time in classrooms: the example a teacher uses to demonstrate a concept draws glazed looks from the students.  Is the teacher doing enough to reach into the culture of the students for examples? 

Without some acknowledgment of culture, lessons can go unlearned for student and teacher.  Matthew Reynolds is a teacher and consultant who works to promote culturally responsive teaching.  He gave a recent workshop in the Rogue Valley, and he visits Robert Goodwin on this month's The Keenest Observers to discuss his work.
