Through intercultural proficiency, our best adaptive approaches are the ability to achieve intercultural goals in an intercultural setting. Intercultural proficiency is not the result of a set of exercises. It is the ongoing developmental process of improving our Cultural Competence, Cultural Climate, Cultural Structures, and Understanding.
Cultural Competence may be considered the skills and abilities of education administrators and teachers to effectively teach a multicultural student body.
Cultural Climate is the physical environments, philosophical framework, and beliefs of the key stakeholders in the community’s educational process
Cultural Structures & Understanding are the policies, procedures, practices, programs, and curriculum designed to comply with Common Core Educational Standards.
