OurSpace: exploring our cultures

By Richard Quarshie


Secondary English trainee teachers at the\ud University of East London were asked in\ud October 2009 to represent their ‘culture’ in some\ud way using four PowerPoint slides. This article\ud describes some of the presentations and discusses\ud what is involved in the process of working out a\ud personal cultural identity. It refers to the notion that\ud ‘culture is ordinary’ and suggests that managing\ud the tension between inducting students into\ud established ‘traditional’ culture, on the one hand,\ud and enabling them to make their own individual\ud meanings, on the other, is at the heart of every\ud teacher’s work
