Culture of the school, architecture influences this

"Rigor is being in the company of passionate adult who is rigorously pursuing inquiry in the area of their subject matter and is inviting students along as peers in that adult discourse. That is rigor."

“The most important foundational element is the culture of the school.” ~ Allan A. Glatthorn (1992)

School Culture


how the school is organized, decorated influences and is a reflection of how a teacher teaches

“They [school architecture] suggest something about the role of education, and their structure reflects a particular cultural orientation.” ~ Stolp & Smith (1995) “They [school architecture] suggest something about the role of education, and their structure reflects a particular cultural orientation.” ~ Stolp & Smith (1995)

Collective influences

“Some important elements of culture, according to Geertz, are the norms, values, beliefs, traditions, rituals, ceremonies, and myths translated by a particular group of people. ~ Stolp & Smith, p. 13 (1995)

Demographic imperative

“The argument for the demographic imperative usually includes statistics about the increasingly diverse student population, the still relatively homogeneous teaching force, and the “demographic divide”. (Gay and Howard, 2000, p.1)

demographic divide= marked disparities in education opportunities, resources and achievement among student groups who differ from one another racially, culturally and socioeconomically

“Different cultural groups have different ways of making meaning.” ~ Jerome C. Harste

Other ways of teaching
