Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: I've been for the most part pleasantly surprised by the extent to which students are willing to share... their own experiences with the class as far as culture... Students seem fairly willing to talk and to share. I deliberately structured some of the activities to be a kind of think-pair-share kind of format, and so they talk in groups before coming back to the class, and I have noticed that there are a number of students very willing to talk in those groups, but are less willing to come to the class. I haven't pushed them to come [share their small group cultural discussion with] the class at this point, because... I can hear that when they are in their groups they are engaging with that, and I want them to feel comfortable in the classroom setting. Last semester I saw a similar trend... some of those students that weren't talking in the beginning were talking by the end.
