Running Head: DESIGNING CULTURALLY RELEVANT INSTRUCTION 2 Being a classroom teacher, I have 18 students in my classroom with their age range from 5-6 years old. I get the chance to interact with children of diverse cultures daily. Some of the students in my classroom are Native American Indians, Korean, Chinese, Hispanic, Caucasian and Africa Americans. Three of my students speak very little English with one being having multiple languages because his family has been to different duty stations around the world. Getting to interact with these students, gives me a desire to know more about their experiences, their cultures and more about how they do things in a different way from how I would do it in my culture. For example, for Italians, Mexicans, Arabs and Chinese, their culture is so integral to them that they almost always carry it around with them; alongside their very tasty cuisines. The Indian, Buddha, and Zen Cultures from the larger Asian communities bring wisdom from the east right onto American soil.

What specific laws and regulations might these be? (Goeldner 284)Natural resources will eventually be destroyed if laws and regulations are not put into effect in order to protect the natural resources, especially those naturally resources which are tourist attractions. One specific law or regulation that might be put into place is regarding trash. Often times,trash and waste can ruin the appearance of naturally resources. Making laws and regulations stating that no food and drinks can be taken beyond a certain point and that all trash must be disposed of properly will help aid in the appearance of natural resources and will also help to protect wildlife. Normally, fines are put in place for those who disobey these laws in order to make sure that the regulations are followed. Aside from laws that the city can put into place, in order to protect the appearance of theirnatural resources for tourism purposes, “ENR also administers, and is governed by, the followingregulations enacted under NWT legislation: Environmental Protection Act, Forest Management Act, Pesticide Act, Reindeer Act, Territorial Parks Act, Waste Reduction and Recovery Act, Waters Act and Wildlife Act” (Northwest Territories, 2015). By following these regulations as well, the city will maintain the beauty of their natural resources for years to come in order for their tourists to enjoy.
