Principle 1

Valuing the funds of knowledge within diverse cultural communities.

Funds of knowledge are the cultural knowledge and skills that households have accumulated over time and that are essential to the well-being and functioning of both the household and the individuals in that household. Our teacher candidates learn about children’s home-based and community contexts and get to know the child as a whole person who is actively involved in multiple spheres of knowledge and relationships. Our goal is to develop innovations in teaching that leverage the cultural knowledge, skills, and relationships embedded in families and that inquire into family legacies and resources and ways of accessing these resources.
