The information below is meant to provide an overview of key highlights, so you develop culturally responsive teaching strategies that are in tune with your students’ unique learning styles.

Schools years are highly ritualized, with the same events and celebrations happening year after year. Students will likely be highly motivated to succeed academically, so teachers should do their best to provide challenging and appropriate curriculum to keep them stimulated. Obedience is valued over creativity so teachers may want to encourage students to engage in art and music-based activities.

Nearly all elementary school teachers are women. School culture is formal, so it might take students time to get used to colloquial conversations with their American teachers. Students may need extra support when changing classrooms between subjects and assimilating to new groups of students frequently. Female students will likely need encouragement to pursue professions that are considered more masculine in Russian society.

Family/School Engagement

Teachers in Russia are valued so parents will likely be very open to communication and suggestions. Because Russia has a world-class education system and a competitive job market, many parents’ primary concern is their children’s academic success. Their wish is for their children to obtain the most desirable jobs and eventually, help support them in their later years.

Russians are not as used to the openness and instant rapport practiced by many other cultures. Many of their personal and business relationships are built up over a lifetime of association, and they prefer to get to know people slowly. When conversing, Russians value direct eye contact and firm handshakes. They may not be extremely talkative or smile excessively at first. Teachers should be friendly while avoiding topics that may be deemed too personal in the early interactions with the family. Due to experiences in their home country, many Russians may not trust authorities.

វាជាការសំខាន់ដើម្បីរក្សាទុកក្នុងចិត្តថាជនភៀសខ្លួនជាច្រើនមិនបានដឹងពីរបៀបក្នុងការបើកបរឬការខ្វះលទ្ធភាពទទួលបានរថយន្តមួយ, ដូច្នេះការដឹកជញ្ជូនទៅនឹងព្រឹត្តិការណ៍សាលារៀននឹងក្លាយជាបញ្ហាប្រឈមមួយដែលសូម្បីតែប្រសិនបើឪពុកម្តាយចង់ឱ្យត្រូវបានចូលរួម.

It is important to keep in mind that many refugees do not know how to drive or lack access to a car, so transportation to school events will be a challenge even if parents want to be involved.

Culture, Gender and Family

The concept of family is extremely important in Russia (and the former USSR) and child rearing is considered a responsibility of both the family and society. Russian homes frequently house several generations. Russians are very hospitable and prefer home-cooked food, typically eat three meals a day, and rarely go out to eat. One challenge incoming students may have is getting used to “snacking.”

Non-academic activities and expectations may be structured in terms of gender. Girls and boys are given different responsibilities. Girls are encouraged to be quiet, មិត្តភាព, and mutually supportive, while boys are expected to be noisy, boisterous, and competitive.
