EYLF Cultural Competence

Post by momotayeasmin » Sat Nov 28, 2015 9:30 pm

The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) (2009) describes cultural competence as ‘the ability to understand, communicate with, and effectively interact with people across cultures’. Complete the following:

According to the EYLF cultural competence encompasses?
• Being aware of one’s own world view
• Developing positive attitudes towards cultural differences
• Gaining knowledge of different cultural practices and world views
• Developing skills for communication and interaction across cultures

QUESTION 2 (B)

Select one of the above skills that you feel you could work on to improve your own cultural competence and describe how you would go about acquiring or improving upon the selected skill.
gain knowledge of different cultural practices and world views.
Cultural competence also includes our efforts to value and build connections with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. Programs that highlight and share Australia’s rich Indigenous culture with all children contribute to the work of Reconciliation and support the rights of all citizens to be valued.



Is it correct?

be aware of our own world view
As we practise these capacities over time, they become stronger and more embedded in our everyday thinking and acting. It is about continually improving and learning, through reflection, from our successes and mistakes. Cultural competence is a big idea; it’s bigger than ethnicity, more than celebrations, larger than food—it’s about all that we are, what shapes our beliefs and how we understand the world. For example, my cultural background is more than my Anglo Irish heritage. It is also about my Grandmother’s (and I assume her mother’s before her) beliefs in manners and punctuality. These beliefs were a feature of my childhood and shape the person I am today. It is something that I grappled with when I worked in a community that viewed time as much more flexible and relaxed than my grandmother’s strict way of life. My growing cultural competence invites me to be aware of my own background and how it affects my relationships with children and their families and the decisions I make.

Is it correct Lorina?

Otherwise please help me because it is my last question of workbook, then I want to submit it.Otherwise I will be struk
