Having spent the last six weeks of Theology Thursday considering the fall of humanity and the consequences of sin, we can clearly see that we need hope and that we are incapable of providing that hope for ourselves. What should come as no surprise to us is that God knew we would sin. In addition to that, he knew that we would be incapable of restoring our relationship with him after we had sinned.

Cultural-centered teaching is an instructional method that requires knowledge of all cultures present in the classroom. Once classroom culture has been identified, the culture of the educator forms a perimeter of protection to the learning environment, making it a safe place for students and the teacher to be culturally influenced while learning.
Race is not a factor in cultural-centered teaching, for we can be of the same race, but of different cultures. Culture of community members acts as the light to brighten the paths to success for students when community members are actively involved in providing internships, employment, job shadowing opportunities and information that is essential to students making informed decisions about their future.
