My own experiences as both a Teacher and Teacher Educator, working with young children in primary school, encourage me to consider ways to enthuse learners to participate as socially and morally responsible citizens. In order to do this, we need to affirm their personal and social backgrounds, in particular, children from diverse cultural backgrounds. I believe that the best learning occurs when a child is self-motivated and this is linked intimately to his personal histories, language and social identity.
