Cultural context is all the parts of a person’s identity that affect the way they learn, teach, treat others, and understand the world. Cultural context includes culture, language, class, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, and more. Cultural context matters because it affects how children and teachers see each other, how people communicate, how children learn, and how teachers teach.
